As each dice falls, they decide the who, the where and the what on earth will happen next! Creating crazy characters, twisty plots and grand finales brand new every time!

But what will they be? A princess in a spaceship uncovering a hoard of treasure! Or a dinosaur learning magic to hold back an alien invasion!

Using funky oversized dice thrown into and around the audience, each roll will lead the performers into the next part of the story. No one will know where the story is going until the dice lands.
