And We're Live
By Mara Nelson-Greenberg
Directed by Emily Moler
As torrential downpours flood the world, a TV news crew tries to spread awareness. But when the station’s power-hungry new owner arrives on set and co-opts the segment with her own outrageous opinions, fact and fiction begin to collide.
About the New Play Project
Aligning with Actors Theatre’s dedication to producing new work, the New Play Project is a series of one-act plays developed in the spirit of fostering relationships with emerging playwrights while giving members of the Professional Training Company space to interact with new work.
This season, Actors Theatre has commissioned three playwrights to write three one-act plays for the series. Throughout the development of each new play, the playwright works closely with a cast of acting apprentices to create a story in collaboration with directing and literary apprentices. These plays are then performed in unique performance spaces at Actors Theatre or throughout the community.
