A Night to Remember: Halloween RPG Oneshot

“Welcome, welcome! Come one, come all!
Welcome to the fabulous and newly renovated Monbeau Theatre!
Please, if everyone can make your way to your seats,
the play is about to begin!”

You are cordially invited to the opening night of the latest play by the dazzling young playwright, Bertrand Gilliard. Gilliard was catapulted to fame early last year with his debut play, These Twists of Fate, a laugh out loud comedy that had Capital in fits for weeks. Now, he is back with a new creation. All of you have been lucky enough to secure a ticket to the opening night and you are excited to see what Gilliard has in store this time.

The premiere is being held at the Monbeau Theatre, a venue theatre in the heart of Capital with an interesting past. Once a crown jewel of the city, attracting audiences from far and wide, the theatre fell into disrepair a number of years ago with rumors of accidents, disagreements and debts being the cause. However, Gilliard insists that the Monbeau is the perfect theatre for his second play and the city has readily bankrolled the renovations of the once grand building. But what about the play itself? Nobody seems to have any details about it and even the most persistent reporters have been stumped by Gilliard’s elusiveness about his latest creation.

You now find yourself eagerly hurrying towards the theatre on this cloudless night, thoughts racing as you try and conceive what Gilliard’s latest play, A Night to Remember, could be about . . .
