One Room

What makes a home? What stories might be hiding in its ordinary rooms?

One Room explores the events of this year by looking at our homes as spaces of possibility and creativity. In May, we commissioned 14 of America’s leading playwrights to create short, one person plays that respond to the present moment and explore the questions, “What makes a home? What stories might be hiding in its ordinary rooms?” Writers will be joined by actors and directors from across the country and each play will be recorded to premiere online August 7. 
 

Curtain Time:

August 7 @ 7:30pm (YouTube Premiere Direct Link)
Beyond the Fourth Wall pre-show discussion @ 7:00pm (Event is at Capacity)

This is a ticketless show and being presented for free.
