Over The Top
By Vanessa Gilbert and David Higgins
Over the Top takes on the Great War with levity and gravity as a performed scaled history of World War I with a game for the audience.
Hosted by the last living WWI veteran, Over the Top presents a garden party whose guests, personifications of the nation states involved in World War I, play out their changing relationships and allegiances. After Austria-Hungary throws the first lawn dart, the audience become mobilized as participants so they too can play War. Our host leads the audience Over the Top, at once releasing himself from his memories and charging us to remember.
