Okay guys.  Asphalt Jungle Shorts was very successful...so we are doing it again in May. 

This is how it works.  The box office was set up on the fifth floor of a down-town parking garage in a mid-sized city.  The first two plays were performed there, then the audience was lead to the back of a seedy hotel for two more plays.  Then, we went to an empty store, the city hall, back to the empty store and finally, the last three pieces were performed in a bar.

This is what I am looking for.  Short plays...anything from one or two minutes, to ten or twelve.  The plays "must" be written to be performed in a particular site.  Use your imagination...but if you give me a play that happens on a train, and I don't have a train, we won't do the play.

Here is a link to the city, if you'd like to get a feel for it.

Here are a some ideas for sites...

- Fire escape
- Shoe store
- City Hall (There is a huge fountain outside)
- There are some tiny parks - green spaces
- On the street
- Art Gallery
- Empty store (could be anything)
- Bar (it was perfect to end up in a bar, and we will do that again.

Notes - The hospital, police station, library...all too far to walk to.  There is no industry downtown.

Any questions?

Get writing.  I want to have received all plays by Valentine's Day.  The process goes like this.  I have six directors...I will have already done the first go-throughs...a pile of no plays...usually because the site wouldn't work, and a pile of maybes.  The directors read them, pick their top three, we meet, we discuss, we decide.

As a playwright, I produced this event with the playwrights much in mind.  I connected each director with their playwright, so they could discuss, the playwrights were paid a dollar a minute a night, I sent programs, posters, fliers, etc. along with the cheques.


Don't post here...send here skye_dragon@sympatico.ca

ms paddy, by any chance is there another KW site that has some photos of your downtown? the tourism site is nice, but i'm trying to get some better visuals.

i'm working on sending you The Ledge (see your PMs), but have another idea, but don't know for sure if it'll work.

thanks!

mac
