From 1983 to 1987, while with the Organic Theater Company in Chicago, Young created, produced and was a cast member in "Dungeon Master",[3] a fusion of improvisational theatre and live action role-playing; each show was a fantasy adventure scenario with theater cast members playing the monsters and non-player characters and volunteer audience members serving as the player characters. Young restarted Dungeon Master in Los Angeles in 2001, where it is still active, although Young stopped active participation in 2006.
