Our first Meetup at our new and final location will be AWESOME. We have Gyda Arber of The Fifth Wall - who will be presenting her genre-defying project Red Cloud Rising. The New York Times called it "theater outside the theater."

About Red Cloud Rising:
Created by Gyda Arber
Technical Wizardry by Aaron Baker
With Tom Reid and Art Wallace
From the award-winning creator of the hit iPod noir Suspicious Package comes an entirely new adventure! Alternate Reality Gaming meets theater in Gyda Arber’s Red Cloud Rising, a tale of Wall Street power that unfolds via text message, putting the audience directly in the show. NOTE: Performed off-site in lower Manhattan. A cell phone is required.
“An innovative, genre-defying entertainment . . . Call it an alternate-reality game played in primary reality. Call it avant-garde performance art. Call it whatever you want. I just call it brilliant.”—New York Times
Approximately 2–3 hours (run time depends on your group's speed)
In small groups every Saturday and Sunday afternoon
Advance tickets required.
The show is a co-production between The Fifth Wall and The Brick Theater.
