"Die: Roll to Proceed" from Ashley Williams

Most horror fans know of Ashley C Williams from the cult horror, soon to be classic, The Human Centipede.  Not all horror fans know just how multi talented, and multi tasking she is.  The lovely Ashley, along with being an actress, singer, and dancer, is also one of the co-founders of Mind the Art Entertainment, and a member of the board.

Mind the Art Entertainment is, for those not familiar, a New York based collaborative arts and entertainment company.  There latest production is an unique and interactive play entitled Die:Roll to Proceed.  Die, is written by Joe Kurtz and directed by Christian de Gre'.  Ashley C Williams serves as one of the producers, along with director de Gre' and Emily Meier.

Die:, is basically the story of a man who is fed up with all of the wrong decisions he has made in his life.  So he makes one more decision to surrender his fate to random chance and the roll of a six sided die. Here is where the interactive part comes in.  At certain, pivotal points in the play, the fourth wall is broken and a member of the audience is asked to roll a die.  Depending on the number rolled, the play will then follow a preset path.

Due to the fluid nature of this, there are reportedly 72 different versions of the play.  The random die roll determines which version the audience will see.  This dependency on a random roll of the dice leads to a strange, unpredictable comedy the likes of which has never been seen before.

DIE: Roll to Proceed will play at The Red Room (85 East 4th Street) with two preview performances on March 30th and March 31st at 10:30pm. Officially opening on Friday, April 6th, the production will continue to play every Friday night at 10:30pm through October 19th. Tickets, priced at $15, can be purchased online at For more information, you can visit
