A Box New Play Festival
From December 1 - 4 at Boston Playwrights’
Theatre, GAN-e-meed Theatre Project will present
Not A Box New Play Festival, a variety of thought-provoking
new work by artists from Boston and beyond. Originally conceived as a
vehicle for The 1-Page Play Experiment, the Festival
has grown into a weekend of innovative theatre that seeks to actively
engage the audience with the creation and performance of new work.
These five plays, selected by audiences as the best of 15 finalists last December, were the result of a unique challenge. Artists were asked to submit a piece that would function as visual, textual, and performance art while staying within the confines of a single page. The directors of last year’s staged readings (Dawn Simmons, Jen Allison Lewis, and Melanie Garber) are returning to bring these five plays to life for their world premieres.
As part of the weekend, there will be one free afternoon
of theatre. GAN-e-meed will present staged readings of this year's 15
1-Page Play Experiment finalists, to be announced shortly. Coming on the
heels of last year’s success, the call for submissions yielded work
from as far away as France and Greece. As in the past, the audience will
vote for this years’ five winners over the course of the festival
weekend. The afternoon of free theatre will also include an original performance
by this years’ Mystery Artist.
