Tips: Choose players with reliable physical presence, as well as a firm grip on silent communication onstage. Players should not try to push complex scenes and instead should focus on establishing a problem.
Gimmicks: Outlandish, exaggerated physical movements work well when paired with just as exaggerated facial expressions.
Variants: Also known as Silent Film or Mimes. A version of the game called To the Talkies can be played with two players and a moderator, who at random intervals will cue the players to start speaking (and likewise cuing silence). This game is also often connected to Sound Effects.
This is a game called Chaplin, where our player will be acting out a silent film scene for you. For this scene, I'll need a problem for our character to be facing.
