Montana Rep, the professional theatre-in-residence at the University of Montana, returns to its former downtown venue, the Crystal Theatre, with a new play by Missoula Colony playwright Deborah Zoe Laufer.
Leveling Up was recently produced at the prestigious Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago, where it garnered excellent reviews. Montana Rep is honored and delighted to be presenting this wonderful play.
Leveling Up looks at gamers, drones, and the American Dream as seen through the eyes of three twenty-something roommates. A brilliant young gamer, recruited by the National Security Agency to fly drones in actual wartime situations, struggles to cope with the realization that his actions have consequences in the real world. Masterfully written in the voice of a young generation, Leveling Up explores the blurred line between the virtual world and reality.
“Smart, funny, frightening, poignant ... and despite its focus on technology, very human.”
