The doctor explains that each is here willingly, and that they are all being compensated for their participation in a research study. Will the assigned attribute of each participant affect their behavior when under extreme duress?

You'll hear homage to some of the most famous lines from the world's best-known and beloved plays performed at breakneck speed. Finally, the cast realizes that the playwright hasn't written an ending, and they have to ask the audience to help come up with a conclusion for the play.
