Planet of the Grapes

Posted by MB - January 4, 2021

Merging the Victorian era’s Toy Theater movement with today’s Digital Theater movement, this compact homage to the 1968 classic Charlton Heston/Rod Serling primate film is faithfully reimagined for the streaming-live stage.

“I can’t help thinking somewhere in the universe there has to be something better than man.” – Colonel George Taylor, Astronaut

An astronaut crew crash-lands on an unfamiliar planet in the distant future and are soon enslaved by a society where grapes have evolved into speaking creatures with human-like intelligence.

That’s it. That’s the plot.

Zoom Plays: Reading Series

Posted by MB - October 9, 2020

 

A national call for scripts written to be performed on the Zoom platform yielded over 475 submissions from all over the world. We put these plays through two independent reading teams with the lens of the Women in Theatre Festival: a female-identifying playwright and at least 50% of all artists must be female-identifying.   At the end of this process, three plays rose to the top. Check out the plays below.  Visit our Women in Theatre Festival page to learn more about the cast and teams behind the series.  To learn more about Zoom Plays or submit your own play, click here!
