    Thursday 2nd Aug, 10.30am
    The entire game is naturally audio-described. The real-life actions of players and performers won’t be described, but the entire game consists of players and performers describing the actions, surroundings and characters that the adventure consists of. Hearing Loop for full duration of the show. The adventure returns! Tabletop role-playing games meets live storytelling in an improvised epic brought to life over a whole month. Witness the legend unfold over 100 individual hour-long shows, or play yourself! Adventurers Wanted is designed to be open and accessible – whether you’ve played role-playing games before or have no idea what they are! The story that gets told is down to the players: there’s no way of knowing where the adventure will end up, but it’s guaranteed to be unlike anything else, and 'the most fun hour at the Fringe' (ExeuntMagazine.com).
