Alone in a Crowd

Alone in a Crowd is a short for three players. In this short, one of you will play someone who has lost their companion in a large crowd. One of you will play the crowd, and one of you will play the companion.

Start by deciding on who will play each role, and some details about each role. What is the crowd? Why are they there? Who is alone? Who is the companion? Why are they there?

Play proceeds with a series of three scenes. Each scene opens with the lost catching a glimpse of the companion. Play out the scene with the lost trying to reach the companion. If you are playing the crowd narrate obstacles to the lost reaching the companion. If you are playing the the lost can not reach the companion until the third scene. If this is not the last scene, the player of the companion should end it by describing the closing of the scene in a way that highlights how alone the lost is.After the first scene, play another scene following the same guidelines.

In the third scene, the lost will find the companion. Begin the scene like the others, but this time narration should lead the lost to the companion rather than away. End the scene with their reunion.
