It is your first semester at Marple Academy, you have no friends, and are uncertain about the insane workload that is surrounded by ridiculous requests that seem to have very little to do with your dual goals of becoming both a famous actor and a respected detective. AND you are unprepared to take Professor N.C. Drew’s Blackmail 101 midterm with Professor N.C. Drew. Can you guess the obscure answers to Professor Drew’s video puzzles? Will your powers of detection impress your fellow classmates? Will you reward yourself by having pizza bagels for dinner or end up crying into a pint of ice cream? Can you beat the clock to save your scholarship, overcome your imposter syndrome, and potentially save a life?

Drawn from writing exercises from the Basic Playwriting class, this interactive performance, based on virtual escape room and puzzle experiences, encourages teams of participants to work together to answer questions while following a series of original stories.
Liz Magic Laser is a cutting-edge artist whose career and success should be inspirational for the Ramapo community. Her performances and video-based installation work has involved collaborations with political strategists, market researchers, journalists, actors, dancers, therapists, surgeons, and motorcycle gang members. Her most recent projects, In Real Life (commissioned by FACT, Liverpool, UK) and Handle / Poignée (commissioned by Centre Pompidou, Paris), explore the efficacy of new age techniques and psychological methods used in both corporate culture and political movements. These works examine the techno-utopian logic of the scientifically managed self and the sociality that hyper-productivity forges.
