Pencil Productions Presents
Pencil Productions is a new collaborative organization designed to serve as a springboard for young thespians of all ilks. Especially at its genesis our group will focus on creating entirely new works with an emphasis on writing and editing. We want to explore various methodologies and choices in acting, directing, and design as well as in the development of scripts.
The pieces we put on are clearly works in progress: short plays and staged readings that could be the beginnings of a longer works, films, or full length plays. Our workplace will be as much a laboratory as a theatre, a setting for us to try out new ideas, new styles, new forms.
Ultimately, Pencil Productions exists to help counteract an American theatre scene that is suffocating in the hands of artists and producers who are unwilling to risk failure. We hold that feigned security is an anathema to art. Particularly to live theatre. We hold that risk is a necessary element of successful theater, the means through which we can discover the rare and the truly beautiful. Pencil Productions is our risk.
