Can Mr A's Amazing Maze Plays be performed without the random element of the audience choosing the party through the second act?
No. It would defeat the purpose of the play which is to provide a 'live' theatrical experience for young people which makes them an essential part of the play by involving them. The random structure of the second act is integral to the play and the interaction between the narrators and the audience is the core of the play; offering young people a chance to see what makes 'live' theatre so special.
