Email or call for price.
Tag: A Cautionary Tale tells the story of a group of boys, a field, and their love of playing. Children have gathered on this field to chase each other in the game of Tag for a very long time. Part of growing up is playing it. But where did this game begin? How did that first person become "It"? How did other childhood playground games, such as red rover, capture the flag, and king of the mountain evolve from this simple one? Tag: A Cautionary Tale reveals this history, but there is a dark side to it that also needs to be told. It is about our own fate and what can happen when a good thing goes bad. It is full of bitter rivalries, deception and betrayal, but it is also the story of us. From the mind of John Collings comes a satirical allegory about the clash of ideologies and what happens if this confrontation is never resolved.
