The projet was a weeklong workshop of this new and promising play, one we felt had potential but needed to be explored on its feet with the support of actors, a dramaturge, and a director. After an intense week of rehearsals, discussions, re-writes, and debate, the play was given two public performances as staged readings. After each performance the audience was encouraged to add their voice to the process in form of praise, concern, questions.

The result was a much better informed playwright who was given a wealth of new information with which to use as he further works on the script.

Going forward we shall follow up with the playwright as he works, hopefully honing his play to a condition that UP Theater Company can feel confident in giving it a fully staged production.
