The next madness of the school year will be produced by first playwright, Trip Venturella! His prompt is “Sequels” Madness! He has asked the playwrights to explore change and succession. Here is an excerpt from his prompt:
Actually, I want to you to investigate sequels, successors, and seconds, to “translate”ideas that include passing the torch or carrying on a legacy. When you have two different things that occupy the same identity, one after the other, doesn’t that create conflict? What is the ripple effect when people encounter the sequel
The show is Friday, January 20th, 11pm, in the Hahne Black Box theater. Admission is free. We recommend you get there 45 to 60 minutes ahead of time to assure yourself a seat and seating is very limited this week again because of space limitations.
