Writing with 66

Writing with 66

Are you a writer, director or actor? Registration is now open. This program is designed to get writers, directors and actors working and collaborating together. Writers registration deadline is April 30th. 

What?

‘Writing with 66’ provides writers a prompt based on a recent newspaper article and 10 days to write a 1 act. At the end of 10 days, our advisors select, at most, 3 of the 1 acts and assign those to 3 directors. Our directors then audition, cast and start rehearsals. Each 1 act will be rehearsed for 2 weeks. At the end of the process each 1 act will have 2 nights of performance.

Why?

We strive to develop our writers, directors and actors by providing a space where original work can be tried, tested and grown. This program was designed around a Tennessee Williams challenge where he would write a 1 act in a week based on a newspaper article.

The Goal: There is a great need for all of us to communicate effectively and purposely. This platform will help breakdown some of the creative barriers that come with different elements of the production process. We plan to develop these 1 acts and support our artists as they continue to support us. To give is to receive.

Audience: Join us May 31st and June 1st at 8 p.m. and watch these original pieces in an intimate black box theater in West Hollywood.
