Need readers?
Would it be helpful to hear stuff out loud?
Is there anything you know you need? Projector, space to run etc... We can't promise we can get it, but we can certainly try.
We make soup and would like to avoid poisoning people or serving them things they can't eat.
Anything else we should know, or you want to?

Jump start a new idea, scratch an itch, or realize a long held dream. Whether it’s a one act comedy of manners, the next Inconvenient Truth presentation, shadow puppets, a song cycle, or something none of us have thought of, this is a great chance to kick start a project, get some time with directors, dramaturges, performers, and an audience. 

We perform excerpts on the very same day they were made, in the same inspired and delirious state.

Start at noon, finish creating at noon. Rehearse until 6, show and drinks at 7, awards at 10. Sleep as required.

Past participants have come from eclectic backgrounds and included teachers, paramedics, accountants, actors, writers, musicians, mechanics, government administrators, lawyers, and one highly motivated elementary school student.

We’re also encouraging teams of people to work together on making a thing. Sketch troupes, research teams, co-workers or theatrical families — all are welcome.
