“Deux Ex Machina” is a live, choose-your-own-adventure performance that gives total control of the play’s storyline to the audience.
Written and directed by Liz Fisher, the play rips characters from Greek mythology and throws them into a gladiator ring.Through the power of Zeus, the audience is transformed into gods and battles it out like clashing titans to determine the fates of the infamous characters of the House of Atreus.
But no matter what the audience chooses, there are consequences, and not all of these characters will make it out alive.
8 p.m. Wednesdays-Saturdays, 5 p.m. Sundays through Jan. 18, with additional performance 8 p.m. Jan. 12. $28-$50. 701 W. Riverside Drive. thelongcenter.org.
