About the larp

What makes a group of friends stay together through the years? What makes someone your chosen family? And what happens when you lose one of your own?

Remember that time… is a bittersweet larp about a group of friends who have stayed together through good times and bad and who are meeting up to reminisce after the death of one key member of their group.

Content Warnings: Grief, death, and sorrow.
