It was a Beautiful Mistake is a larp for four to twenty players (ideally at least 8) and one facilitator (who may also be a player if they think they can manage both) about a burnt out teacher trying to reconcile their career. On the last day of Alex Park’s career, they reflect on their time in and out of the classroom trying to decide if the years were worth it. This manifests as imagined conversation between different representations of Alex as they aged and progressed through their career. Each player will play Alex at different points of their life. Before playing decide on a time limit for the discussion (60, 90, or 120 minutes) and chose a play space with a chalk, white, or cork board large enough for all players to easily view available. You will also need name tags and any other materials to display information on the boards.
