From May 14 31, The New Georges Jam on Toast Festival (featuring work by the members of New Georgess early-career playwright/director lab) will occupy the beloved Dixon Place, a well-known home to emerging artists of all disciplines. Both the upstairs lounge and downstairs theater of Dixon Place will host the 19 Jam members (all women) as they produce three world premiere productions, three major works in progress, three lounge shows, and some one night only events.
The circumference of the earth is 24,901 miles. This seems like a lot if youre driving through a mile or two of dense city at rush hour, or walking a mile or two from village to potable water and then back with a basket full of it. And seems like not so much if you are a junior executive at a boutique bank flying first class on a Gulf state airline to make a deal in JoBurg on Tuesday and then on to Osaka on Thursday.
I have known David since 1999. He has produced five of my plays, three of them multiple timesmost recently The Hill Town Plays ran simultaneously in five downtown theaters this past summer. He is the artistic director and founder of Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, which has produced over 60 world premieres in the past 17 seasons. Rattlestick is where I learned to be a playwright. We talked on a rehearsal break for his own play, A Fable.
