The nice people at The Culture Project’s Women Center Stage Festival
asked New Georges to join their line-up!

We said, SURE! Gave our evening a title — New Georges Just Does It! — and figured we’d come up with something.

Meanwhile, affiliated artist Dipika Guha was ANGRY.  Super angry, about the ongoing non-closing of Guantanamo Bay.  She wanted to craft a theatrical response REALLY FAST, and involve LOTS OF FELLOW ARTISTS.

We said, HEY!  We have this slot at Women Center Stage!  You just came up with something!  Go go go go go go go!

Now, we hope you’ll JOIN US July 25 at 8pm
at The Culture Project’s Lynn Redgrave Theater, 45 Bleecker Street

Here’s what it is and how we’re / who is making it!

Culture Project’s Women Center Stage 2013 Festival presents

New Georges Just Does It!

And indeed we do, with speedily generated Letters To Guantanamo, conceived by playwright Dipika Guha and designed in partnership with New Georges.

These are the amazing participating playwrights: Barbara Cassidy, Gina Femia, Dipika Guha, Julia Holleman, Caroline V. McGraw, Winter Miller and Crystal Skillman!  And it’s all directed by Sarah Krohn.

These are the fabulous actors: Danny Binstock, Oliver Burns, Arlene Chico-Lugo, Diane Ciesla, Paul Klementowicz and Irene Sofia Lucio

Letters To Guantanamo began as a call for rapid-response plays on the heels of the House of Representatives blockage of a bill to close Guantanamo Bay almost four weeks ago (14th of June). The pieces are being generated as ‘bake-offs.’  Written in no more than twenty-four hours, they will all include a series of shared ‘ingredients’ which will go into the ‘baking’ of every piece. Created as a means for playwrights to respond immediately and collectively to the heart of this human crisis, Letters to Guantanamo follows the tradition of plays like Caryl Churchill’s ‘Seven Jewish Children,’ written quickly after events in Gaza in 2008-2009.
