Description: Level Up is a one-act, experiential, partially improvised play about a teenage boy with severe ADHD who compulsively plays computer games to cope. But this disconnection leads to blurred lines between fantasy and reality. In light of recent shootings across the country, this play, perhaps, offers an experiential perspective on where it can begin, why, and what responsibilities, if any, families, teachers and society have.
