According to the show information on the official ticket site, "Each performance’s program and song choice follows the hero’s journey, a pattern of 17 stages found in both literature and video games, including the call to adventure, supernatural aid, atonement and freedom. The story is accompanied by visuals from the games themselves, and narrated by Nigel Carrington of Dear Esther."
