Finalist for the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center's National Playwrights Conference.

When a wunderkind video game developer decides to create an indie game that strives for something more than entertainment, she finds herself in a nightmare of production delays, self-doubt, and a rabid fan base that is used to getting what they want.

    InterAct presented D-PAD as part of our 2015 Core Playwrights Weekend. D-PAD takes on the world of independent video gaming with thoughtfulness, humor, humanity and integrity, highlighting why people are drawn to the form while holding it accountable for the sexism ingrained in its bones. We were thrilled to participate in the advancement of this piece.

    Jeremy Gable has written a play that is both a critique on the world of video games and a love letter to that world. The dialogue feels so natural coming out of mouths of these complex characters as they interact with each other in such relatable ways. The use of theatricality with the scenes that take place in the world of the game make me so anxious to see this fully produced.

    D-Pad explores the video game world through a unique and thoughtful lens. The structure of the play highlights the theatricality of the gaming world in a way I have not seen done before, while never losing the heart of the story and very real, grounded relationships between the characters. It's both funny and heartbreaking, and provides awesome roles for female actors.
