But as the interview progresses, Evelyn realizes just how quickly dream can turn to delusion. A ten-minute musical infused with a 32-bit score, Evelyn Shaffer and the Chance of a Lifetime shows that, sometimes, the greatest quests aren’t in video games, but our own lives.

'Evelyn' is a 10-minute masterpiece! Bravo to the writers who are able to accomplish an incredible amount of depth in the heroine in a very short amount of time. I laughed, cried, and was thoroughly entertained!
