How does it work?

The 2 to 4 players act out a scene, hopefully with a lot of physical actions. At any point in the scene, the director (usually whoever's running AI) can say Pause, Play, Fast Forward, Rewind, or Stop. Pause makes the players freeze; Stop makes them collapse; Fast Forward makes them do the scene really fast; Rewind makes them do the scene backwards (just say the individual lines in reverse, not the words or sounds); Play makes them continue forward at normal speed.
