Magic the Play tells the story of the magical kingdom Alterria where chaos ensues when spells, potions, and pendants begin to lose their powers. When the government of Alterria fails to fix magic, its cunning Prime Minister sinisterly blames the issue on two traveling charlatan-magicians as scapegoats. It’s up to these misfits to stand up against the immense power of Alterria’s Prime Minister. Cheerful and fun, Magic the Play tackles the question of what people should do when their government fails to represent them.
