NEW WORKS OF SCOPE & ADVENTURE
TO DELIGHT THE SENSES, THRILL THE BRAIN
AND DEFY A SHRINKING THEATER
4 EFFLORESCENT “GERMS” OF SPECIALLY-COMMISSIONED HIGHLY THEATRICAL NEW WORKS PRESENTED TOGETHER IN 1 COHESIVE, SENSICAL, ABSOLUTELY ENTERTAINING PRODUCTION WITH A DELIGHTFUL “TO BE CONTINUED” AESTHETIC

The assignment: to write a play of “scope and adventure,” a “dream” play, an unproduce-able play, encompassing elements which extend and expand a conventional playwriting repertoire.  These may include but not be limited to the following: structural innovation, event-like qualities, vigorous or experimental use of language and visual images, outward-looking perspective on the world, atypical relationship to the audience, messiness, music, humor and magic.
