Community-Based Play 2017


Our next community-based play will be developed over the course of 18 months from Spring 2016-Fall 2017. Anyone can get involved in the development of the play, whether or not they want to perform. Our topic, “Education,” was arrived at from discussions that came out of our last play On the Corner, which left people wanting to address the challenges to education our community, and our country, face.’

The development phase of the project involves storytelling, improvisation, and community-building as we work together to discover what about education does our community want to focus on.
