8Players (8P) is New York's premiere theatrical role-playing experience. Audiences connect in intimate groups by "starring"in an explosively strange narrative inspired by classic, camp, and even "trash" cinema. In most cases, players have the agency to choose which one of several theatrical worlds to enter. After choosing a world, their role in it is meticulously tailored to their personality. As the show date nears, each player is sent essential information on the character and situation they'll be inhabiting. The results are surreal, unexpectedly funny, and spellbinding

Since 2013, 8Players has led sold-out limited runs in hidden venues on both US coasts. A Time Out New York Critic's Pick, 8Players has been called "a new level of escapist entertainment" (Village Voice) and a "must-see campy wet dream" (Out magazine). Creator Ross Tipograph has assembled a cast and crew of 40 (performers, photographers, consulting producers) from multi-award-winning theatrical experiences, film, and television, including Sleep No More, Queen of the Night, You Me Bum Bum Train, and Broad City.
