In August, six playwrights were sent to disturbing locations where they were left to write a play. They arrived at their destinations with no idea where they were going or what they were going to write, allowing the environment to influence their stories…and it did. Welcome to the Write or Flight RESPONSE.
We’ve been doing this since 2011, and have been amazed with the concepts and quality of writing that has emerged from this. Many plays have gone on to be performed at other festivals and venues. We have sent playwrights to haunted hotel rooms, a barn filled with not quite feral cats (the playwright did not mention she was allergic), mausoleums, empty stores, et al.
Tonight’s schedule of performances:
