Crashing a play in The Theatre.

MAP08: The Theatre is the seventh level of The Abyss. It was designed by J.M.P van Waveren (MrElusive), and resembles a school cafetorium. This level also features a deceptively simple stair puzzle.

A humorous setup is employed with the use of monsters, with the implication that the player is interrupting a play.

"The schoolboy's nightmare."
