What The Dirty Blondes say about Freak Show
Our Play-in-a-Day Festivals bring together a group of daring and energetic playwrights, directors, and actors to conceive, write, rehearse and perform seven short plays over the course of 24 hours.
We selected 7 playwrights, 7 directors, and 19 actors to participate in this truly unforgettable experience. Selected participants will meet for the first time at 8pm on Saturday, July 23 and be randomly assigned into teams. Playwrights will have until 8am Sunday, July 24 to submit their brand new 10-minute script. Directors and performers will have the day to rehearse and tech until the off-book performance at 8pm that same day. It’s a wild and unforgettable ride, and we’d love for you to come along!
This time we’ll explore stories of Freak Show performers and the label ‘FREAK’ – how do we ‘otherize’ people different from us, how do we exploit those difference, and ultimately how can we humanize those who may scare us?
