Play Title:The Offensive
Runtime:61-90 minutes
Synopsis:When the Venetian Senate refuses to punish a graffiti artist convicted of libel with the death penalty, the Doge -- an aging war hero who doesn't quite know what to do with himself in peacetime -- decides to get 'justice' by murdering the Senators and establishing a dictatorship. All the Doge needs to accomplish 'regime change, leader stabilization'; is accomplices -- wrong word, 'backup'; -- but the only backup; available is the Conspiracy -- a group whose main objective is to get rid of HIM. Can the Doge turn this terrorist cell into a unit of well-trained 'patriots' and 'freedom fighters', overnight, or will the Republic be overrun by Vandal(ist)s? Most importantly, can he do this without setting off the jewel of the Republic's defence system -- the mysterious Ratapult?
