Inspired by the infamous 1971 psychological Stanford Prison Experiment. In DAS EXPERIMENT participants enlist for quick cash to simulate the prison experience and test its effects. Easy money. But it turns out otherwise as the ‘guards’ begin to feel their power and the ‘prisoners’ experience a stripping of pride and humanity. As the players settle further into their roles, tension mounts. DAS EXPERIMENT opens in the UK in April. Preview courtesy of Metrodome.
