performers needed – last minute!
Looks super fun!
Playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins (Neighbors, forthcoming at the Public), director Gavin Quinn (PanPan Theatre), and dramaturg/producer Allison Lyman (NYC Players) are currently developing an adaptation of nineteenth century playwright Dion Boucicault’s famous melodrama THE OCTOROON for Performance Space 122 (to premiere June 2010) and could use your help.
They’re having a sort of super-last-minute workshop/lab on January 5 and 6 (Next week! Whoops?!), during which a group of actors and artists will read out loud together all or parts of Boucicault’s original THE OCTOROON–with a bit of light direction from Gavin–followed by a brief, informal, artist-led discussion. Pending available time, rough pages from the new adaptation may also be read.
