2022-10-01 19:30:002022-10-01 19:30:00America/ChicagoBIGGAMEBIGGAME created by WeAreMarried. directed by Chelsie Newhard. A/V engineering by Victoria Carpenter. featuring Shelby Richardson and Jay Eisenberg. How long do you think you could survive in remote wilderness? Two days? One year? You sure do talk a big game. While you consider if you've got what it takes, we invite you to sit back in your lawn chair and watch someone else give it their best shot. Get comfortable. It might not last long. Welcome to the studio audience of BIGGAME, a live fever dream of a televised survivalist game show where one intrepid adventurer-turned-amateur filmmaker faces off with the elements. Armed with ten carefully selected items and what some might call "an absolutely unhinged level of expertise," our competitor still wonders: will a lifetime of preparation be enough? And with a life-changing sum of money on the line, will they come out on top, or get topped by nature itself? Don't encourage them. They don't even know you're here. They're alone in this. And so are you. BIGGAME is a site-responsive, outdoor, multimedia show that, while immersive, does not include audience-performer interaction. BIGGAME includes strong language, crude humor, and unconvincingly depicted, fully clothed simulated sex. BIGGAME grapples with a variety of intense concepts, including extreme hunger, prolonged constipation, substance use, life, death, and loss. Violence is referenced, but not seen or heard onstage. BIGGAME is not recommended for audience members under 16. If you have additional questions about content, please email us.

How long do you think you could survive in remote wilderness? Two days? One year?

You sure do talk a big game.

While you consider if you've got what it takes, we invite you to sit back in your lawn chair and watch someone else give it their best shot. Get comfortable. It might not last long.
