As a young(er) playwright who also enjoys teaching writing in class, I have a question for all directors:What's a play or storyline that doesn't exist that you think should?...or...Is there a specific genre you'd like to see more plays fit?
...or...If you could throw a handful of ingredients (cast requirements/genre/storyline/age level - anything) into a blender to create a play you'd love to direct...what would the ingredients be?
I love the image you described in your first paragraph. And the integrity vs. hypocrisy idea as well.
Thank you for answering.
When Dani walks in on her older brother with a passed out girl, she is shocked and confused. As events unfold, she must decide between her loyalty to him or her responsibility to do what is right. Can I Trust You, was written and performed in 2005 by the students in the Conflict Resolution Class. Come and see this timely remount of a show that dives into the arena of consent and assault, family and friends and the struggle surrounding accountability when lines are crossed. Due to the mature content, this show is not suitable for pre-teens.
Hi Amy,I have heard this story over and over. That is why my company CPA Theatricals focuses on created new plays and musicals featuring many strong female leading roles. Check out the online, virtual musical THE MYSTERY OF CUSTODIA, THE LAND OF FORGOTTEN TOYS - a Christmas musical (adapted for socially distanced staging) or GIRLHOOD.Hope this is helpful. Love to have ideas for my next project.
