Awesome Theatre Presents: Unproduceable
UNPRODUCEABLE is a reading series where Awesome Theatre brings to the stage the best Bay Area playwrights and their most unproduceable plays. What makes a play UNPRODUCEABLE? Could it be too many characters? Does it have a live elephant crash through a wall? Do scorpions fall from the rafters in slow motion? Ultimately the story of what makes a play UNPRODUCEABLE is the story of what it means to be a playwright working in the modern theatre. Spend an evening in conversation with a celebrated Bay Area playwright and a hear a play that might not be coming to a stage near you but youll wish it was.
UNPRODUCEABLE brings Katie Mays A History of Freaks to the EXIT Theatre main stage. Mays entertaining dark comedy circus play tells the story of the Stromboli brothers traveling circus and sideshow, the last vestige of the golden age of traveling shows, is trying to survive in a modern era where screens have replaced live entertainment, and the photo-shopped freak is more appealing than the real thing. Well talk with May about the joys of creating commissioned work for a university setting (no character limits!) and the pitfalls of transitioning those shows to other stages (too many characters!) Well also hear the play itself performed by great local bay area actors along with some fantastic musical guests. Join Awesome Theatre for an evening of UNPRODUCEABLE new work that will leave you hungry for more.
