Larp House Presents: I Say a Little Prayer

image

Five gay men live together in a shared apartment in New York City. We follow this group of friends over a couple of years in the early 1980s when the AIDS epidemic hit gay communities hard. These men will be personally affected by the AIDS crisis over the course of play.

This larp is a condensed version of the internationally acclaimed Nordic larp Just a Little Lovin’, run in Minnesota last year. The themes of friendship, desire, and death are universal ones. We hope to offer participants new insight on an often overlooked part of US history through this event.

What

I Say a Little Prayer, a freeform Nordic larp scenario for five players.

Designed by Tor Kjetil Edland

Larp House Presents: I Say A Little Prayer

“We’re all going to go crazy, living this epidemic every minute, while the rest of the world goes on out there, all around us, as if nothing is happening, going on with their own lives and not knowing what it’s like, what we’re going through. We’re living through war, but where they’re living it’s peacetime, and we’re all in the same country.”
– Larry Kramer, American playwright and AIDS activist

LARP HOUSE PRESENTS: I SAY A LITTLE PRAYER​​

Five gay men live together in a shared apartment in New York City. We follow this group of friends over a couple of years in the early 1980s when the AIDS epidemic hit gay communities hard. These men will be personally affected by the AIDS crisis over the course of play.

This larp was written to be a bite-size version of Just A Little Lovin’ a 6-day long larp about friendship, desire, and the fear of death. Larp House is supporting an independent team of organizers in bringing the acclaimed Nordic larp to Minnesota in summer 2017. I Say A Little Prayer covers many of the same themes and is written by the same author.
