This Friday, BOXCUTTER HARMONICA by alum J. Merrill Motz opens at the Minnesota Fringe Festival. BOXCUTTER HARMONICA is a collaboration between the Minneapolis-based playwright and his longtime friend, Chicago playwright Randall Colburn, shedding light on obsession, greed, greatness, and the devil’s singular fascination with collecting souls.
I’ll Hear It When I See It, the award-winning play by 3rd Year MFA Playwright Ira Gamerman has been selected for Short + Sweet Sydney’s 2012 10-minute play festival in Sydney, Australia.
