WHAT: Not A Box New Play Festival

WHERE: Boston Playwrights’ Theatre — 949 Commonwealth Ave,
December 1st through 4th at Boston Playwrights’ Theatre, GAN-e-meed Theatre Project will present Not A Box New Play Festival, a variety of thought-provoking new work by artists from Boston and beyond. Originally conceived as a vehicle for The 1-Page Play Experiment, the Festival has grown into a weekend of innovative theatre that seeks to actively engage the audience with the creation and performance of new work.
Fans of last seasons’ 1-Page Play Experiment will be happy to see its second iteration this December.
GAN-e-meed will be producing the five winners of last years’ experiment: Mortal City, by Allie
Herryman, adapted from the song Mortal City by Dar Williams; Pulse, by Stacey Lane; Untitled, by
Danny Bryck; tired, by Alyssa Osiecki and Dave Ring; and The Internet Means Never Having to Say
Goodbye, by N. Harrison Ripps. These five plays, selected by audiences as the best of 15 finalists last
December, were the result of a unique challenge. Artists were asked to submit a piece that would function
as visual, textual, and performance art while staying within the confines of a single page. The directors
of last year’s staged readings (Dawn Simmons, Jen Allison Lewis, and Melanie Garber) are returning to
bring these five plays to life for their world premieres.
