The Evening of Staged Readings Played to a Full House
We were pleased to have a full house for the evening of staged readings by selected playwrights, including Lida McGirr, Phyllis Rittner, Hortense Gerardo, Kelly DuMar, Ann Marie Shea, Andrea Fleck Clardy, Rosanna Yamagiwa Alfaro, Griffen Hoyle & Deniz Khateri
This year's theme was "Theatre as a Medium of Social Change." Inspired by Diane Paulus and the A.R.T.'s practice of involving the audience by providing an "Act II" - consisting of facilitated discussions after the play performances, this year Kelly invited True Story Theater to facilitate audience sharing & "play back" spontaneous & heartfelt audience responses to the plays about social change, as pictured below.
