A tale that tells the tale of a video game prodigy is coming to The Arts Station. Noob is a one man play, written and performed entirely by Christopher Duthie. Duthie portrays Daniel, a video game prodigy who has crashed his bike and is lost in the woods. In an effort to make sense of what brought him there in the first place, Daniel reflects on a fight with his father, his desire for independence, and his quest to meet an online friend. Confused and frightened, Daniel finds himself locked in a struggle between his reality and the exciting fantasy of the video game he loves.

Reviewed by Stephen Hunt with the Calgary Herald, Hunt comments, the play “thoughtfully explores the phenomenon of gamer culture in a way that will connect to the gamer-loving kids as much as it will also connect to their baffled parents... Noob is must see theatre.”

The one man show is sure to provoke conversation as it explores themes of online identity, video game obsession, family conflict, and the anxieties of teenage life. Check out Noob at The Arts Station, Tuesday night, 8 pm.

Tickets are available at the door, Carosella, Freshies, and online at www.noob.eventbrite.ca. The play is recommended for audiences of ages 12 and up.
