The Kick Inside

by Martin Brodén and Kristoffer Lindh

The Kick Inside is a scenario about different stages in life and how we cope with changes. Major themes are identity, choice and acceptance.

We get to meet four people—Agnes, Marcus, Olivia and Thomas—and follow them through three different stages in life. Three parallell, separate stories, each running through four acts. All stories take place in cabins that are curiously alike.

In difference to most jeepform games, The Kick Inside is very larp-like, in this case meaning that most events occur in real-time, and in parallel, rather than focussed on a single event at each point in time.
