Three New York Neo-Futurists create their own versions of Zork, Minecraft and Zelda live on stage in their first Nerdcore musical. Acquiring treasures, meeting bosses and possessing their very own sage, Kevin, Marta and Adam build their own utopian universe set to a Nerdcore beat. YOU ARE IN AN OPEN FIELD is a modern hip-hoperetta that explores community and identity while trying to defeat the kickball monsters. Will they win? Or is it game over, reset?
