The Barbecue (2012, 2012 New England LARP Conference (NELCO), Build Your Own Game seminar)

It’s a quiet, sunny summer day in the suburbs. The monthly neighborhood barbecue (and pie contest) will be hosted by the Kessenich family this Sunday. The Rossi and Lee family will be in attendance as usual, along with the Kessenich’s new tenant Brittany.

This is a character-driven drama, lightly plotted with no magic or supernatural elements. The setting is contemporary and realistic. Content may include abandonment, abortion, adultery, aging, crime, divorce, drug use, poverty, separation, serious illness, unexpected pregnancy, internalized homophobia and internalized sexism. Pie may be represented by actual pie.
