HISTORY: You explain to your audience that you’ve acquired, at auction, a lot of Tw*light Z*ne memorabilia which included a script for an unaired episode, a unique prop from the prop department (a coin), and some audio recordings.
While merely showing off your latest acquisition, someone asks if they can make a wish with the coin. They do, and then begin to realize there’s something special about this old television prop and that, maybe, their wish may have been granted.
This moment of pure magic is brought to an end by you playing the audio clip of Mr. Serling closing out the episode. Even though you’re playing it as part of showing your acquisition, they can’t help but feel like they’ve lived through an episode, especially after all the mystery surrounding the coin. As mysterious and magical as this program is known to be, you never did expect the prop itself to take on a life of its own, proving beyond doubt that there’s something special to this legendary show.
CONTENTS: Included in the custom collector’s box is a brass coin, made from a hand-sculpted mold with a three-dimensional relief and aged to perfection, alongside a specially-made leather holder and a high-quality wooden USB drive containing: a printable scan of the script, the audio recordings, and several other performance materials. Only 120 units will ever be produced. No sleight of hand or memory work is required.
ABOUT: Guide your audience as they cross over into the dimension of imagination. They live through and experience a lost episode of arguably the world’s greatest television program. While examining the script, props, and other materials you won from a Hollywood auction house, the prop seems to come to life in the spectator’s hand, and it all ends with the voice of the man himself as you play the audio recording of the never-aired closing narration.
Desire is the first in a series.
