The Spokane

The Spokane is a long form structure that begins with a source scene then “spokes” out to follow interesting characters, peculiar world realities, unspoken histories, and just about any fun choice that presents itself that the ensemble wants to explore. There’s a reason this form is so popular among NYC indie teams– both patient-play and fast-play coexist in harmony in this highly accessible, often outrageously fun structure. This workshop will introduce the form, focus on effective tag mechanics, and run sets.
