Is It Is It Wiki’d
This is one of our favourites! Why oh why don’t we play this all the time?
The Wikipedia home page is projected on to the back wall. The audience pick an number between 1 and 10, which is the number of times “random page” is clicked. That page inspires a scene. If someone off stage shouts “”dig deeper”” we click on a link on that page and that inspires another scene in that world. Shouting “random page” leads to new random page and new scene world.
This is mainly just for fun and for shows. It does also teach how to be inspired by different inspirations and use them to create great scenes.
Don’t spend too long reading the article, that’s boring, just read the title and a couple of lines and get stuck in.
Don’t worry if you don’t know anything about the topic, it’s not a test, just do your version of it and have fun with it.
