Boss Battle

COMEDY. Four strangers meet in an online fantasy videogame on a quest to defeat the immortal, computer-generated evil dark lord, Belnod “The Destroyer.” The motley group includes a player with a mic that cuts out when she gets angry or excited; a student who has to get his English grade up or he’ll be banned from gaming for months; a hyper new player who tends to get other characters killed; and the group’s no-nonsense leader, who doesn’t like new players. After two disastrous attempts to defeat Belnod, the group reluctantly agrees to meet in person for the first time to plan their final raid. After hatching an ingenious scheme to obtain an uber-powerful weapon, the players reunite a final time in an attempt to defeat Belnod. Audiences will love this hilarious, joke-filled send-up of online gaming! Easy to stage.
