a very immersive, very terrible first date
You met Emma online. Her profile says she likes her new rescue dog, drinking (alone or with friends), and tetris. Today is your first date. Too bad it will be terrible.
Winner of the Immersive Critic's Circle "Best Overall Immersive Work" award, RED FLAGS is a highly interactive theater experience for audiences of one-at-a-time. On this fictional first date, audiences meet and experience the character of Emma - a woman struggling to make sense of her life in Los Angeles. Over the course of their hour alone together, the audience member and Emma get to know one another intimately, discovering the misunderstandings and unexpected connections of a bad date.
Emma takes a selfie with each audience member she "dates." These are highlights from some of her past encounters.
