(AKA: First dinner party larp: The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie)

RPG system: LARP


✏️Mo Holkar

OrganizerMo Holkar


PDF Scenario [English] (0.2 MB)


Before the summer, we presented a new innovation that we want to try out at Grenselandet this year: The-dinner-party challenge. We have a dedicated room where there will be a dinner table, chairs and some corona-convenient food and drinks available, and we invited larpmakers to pitch their ideas for larps that could be run in this scenography. Today, we are happy to present the first of these larps: The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (UK) by Mo Holkar.

A group of friends and lovers attempt to eat dinner together, but are repeatedly interrupted.

Can they retain their personalities and their faultless manners, in the face of a succession of increasingly surreal and disturbing disruptions?

Can the bourgeoisie preserve its discreet charm, as familiar world order crumbles into chaos?
