Art Time Presents New Year, New Murder: An Immersive Roleplaying Experience
Thymele Arts - Common Room 1/18/20, 8pm
Chicago, New Years Eve - 1928
Finally, a truce has been reached between the three rival families that own this town. The oldest family, the Rigatoni’s, have run every successful restaurant in the city and believe that cookery is the highest artform. The Dell’arte family, known for their theatrical nature and bombastic performances, believe that performing arts are the only valid artform. Lastly, the Fresco family, known for collecting and selling only the greatest paintings and sculptures, believe that visual art should be at the top.
After heated negotiations these warring factions have decided to draw up a truce, but tensions are high. Should anything go awry (like a murder) everything could crumble…
The signing of the truce is set for New Years Eve at the Chicago Dance Hall. All key members are expected to be in attendance along with their supporters and anyone else who just wanted to get a nice bootleg drink and dance the charleston.
