Interview with a Playwright:
WALT McGOUGH

Non-Player Character

Aspiring video game designer Katja and her longtime friend Trent are an unstoppable team in the online underworlds of SpearLight until Trent wages a real-life war against her with an army of internet trolls.

Based loosely on GamerGate, this play delves into a timely and boldly theatrical exploration of the misogyny in the games we play, and who’s winning.


Saturday July 16th & Friday July 22nd
Custom Made Theatre San Francisco

“So I’d been thinking for a while about what a play about video games could look like on stage, and then… with the #gamergate “movement” flaring up and exposing a lot of the massive obstacles that women in the games industry and gaming culture face on a daily basis. It’s really not much different at its core than the issues women and minorities face all over in society.”
