This production is the fourth in a series of collaborations between Toy Boat Theatre and UW Tacoma, featuring socially relevant and inclusive plays about current issues in American society. This production contains adult themes and language; suitable for high school and older.
In 2002, Suzan-Lori Parks wrote a play a day for an entire year; in 2006, more than 15 American cities, including Seattle, Austin, Los Angeles and NYC, with over 700 theatre groups, collectively and simultaneously performed all 365 plays between November 13 through November 12, 2006. We will be performing a selection of 30 of her short plays, which explore American history, the military, politics, relationships, race, spirits, riffs on well known works, jaywalking, and an appearance by The Supremes. Suzan-Lori Parks has recently released a collection of plays written during the first 100 days of President Trump's time in office. We can't wait to bring you some of these; stay tuned!
Tickets are $10.00, and available online at brownpapertickets.com from 10/30/17, or at the door (cash or check only). UW Tacoma Students get in free with ID; brownpapertickets discount code/pw: UWT
As was our collaborative model for the previous productions, the acting company and production team of 365 Days/365 Plays is made up of UW Tacoma students and alumni and actors from the region. This company features 5 UWT undergraduate and graduate students, and 7 local actors, with a similarly combined production crew. The production designers are Nic Olson (New Muses Theatre), lighting and scenic design; Dylan Twiner, sound; Ricky German, costumes.
This and our previous collaborative productions are made possible with generous contributions of resources and funding from the University of Washington Tacoma, and resources from University of Puget Sound and Toy Boat Theatre.
