UNI Interpreters Theatre presents "In Real Life"

DIVE IN to COURSEGOLD. Mythical beasts, dangerous quests, and rapidly rising inflation? Anda and her in-game alter-ego, Kali, join forces with rough-and-tumble Sarge to rid Coursegold of economy-ruining Gold Farmers. But an encounter with a Gold Farmer makes Anda question what she’s really fighting for. What happens when in-game and out-game collide? What happens when in-game becomes IN REAL LIFE?
