Our theme for this ShuffleFest is
‘The Games We Play’
Humans use games as a form of escape, joy and connection. It creates community, and tradition. In games there are usually winners and losers; they can bring a toxic side out of people. Whether consciously, or unconsciously; in life, we are playing games. Trying to be the one with the most power, trying not to be hurt, trying to hide, or trying to bring joy in a brutal world. As a writer, it is your chance to create something that captures a game. It can have a game that is showcased, it can show someone who treats something like a game, or it can just have winners and losers.
Once all the plays are chosen for our festival, we will shuffle all the scripts that were given and randomly give each director a different play that they will cast using their circle of actors, or the actors who submit to be apart of this festival. It is your chance to create something that captures a game.
Stay tuned for information about plays, tickets and other fun things.
