Prompts will be a few words that you must incorporate, either as phrases or concepts.

They then have 12 hours to write a short script (up to 10 minutes). We will have a Zoom room set up overnight for writer commiseration and support. At 8 am on Saturday, June 26, the directors are given their scripts and actors. They then have 12 hours to rehearse their script. At 8 pm on Saturday, we go live on Zoom.You may sign up as writer, director, or actor. We have 12 slots for writers and directors, and will be assigned on a first-come-first-serve basis. If you would like to include a second choice of job, you may do so. You may sign up to write as a pair if you wish.

Doctor Faustus
by Christopher Marlowe

Set in a modern, internet-forum world, Faustus connects with some dangerous minds online and is dragged into a world of conspiracy, magic, and evil. After making a deal with a servant of Hell to unlock the truth and powers of the world, Faustus gets more than he bargained for when his payment comes due. On a backdrop of reddit and internet indoctrination, this production explores what it means to access the truth and to confront reality, whatever it may be.
