As the internet grows more and more important and influential in our lives, comment sections seem to grow longer, and longer. In searching through the anonymous comment boards we encounter sexism, racism, fear, bravery, loathing, body shaming, transphobic, anti-religious hate speech, and literally everything in between.
Instead of ignoring these often ignorant and sometimes upsetting comments, The Dirty Blondes will bring together playwrights, directors and actors to collaborate and create a night of seven original 10-minute plays based on selected comments from the internet. The added catch: actors, directors and playwrights have to come together to create this new work from scratch in just one day.
Writers will be given a prompt at 8pm on Saturday, January 31st where they will meet their randomly selected director and cast. The teams meet again at 9am on Sunday with final scripts and Directors + cast get to work to stage a show for a live audience at 8pm on Sunday night! It’s a wild and unforgettable ride, and we’d love for you to come along!
