In 1917, revolution is brewing around the world; the Russian workers have just thrown off the yoke of aristocratic oppression and now Ireland is restive too. Bancroft Manor is a microcosm of the tensions between the upper and lower classes.

Players will inhabit two roles in this game: a member of the "upstairs" Bancroft family and a corresponding member of the downstairs servants. All activities will take place around food: planning, preparing, consuming, and clearing a family meal. Dietary and mobility issues will be accommodated but if you don't wish to participate in preparing and eating food, this is not the game for you.

Content includes homophobia (and a gay character), war wounds both physical and mental, stuttering, strong religious views, death of a child in the distant past, and potential character death (at the end of the game). Players must be 18 or older.


Player Communications
A questionnaire will be sent out to players to determine which pre-written characters are the best match. The sheets will have questions on them that allow the player to make some decisions about characters' motivations. There will be some brief workshopping beforehand to make it easier for players to shift between characters.

De Smet, Kathleen
