Artistic Director Raymond Bobgan announces the return of At-TEN-tion Span, a ten minute play festival. This year all plays are world premieres, devised by local artists. The diverse short plays explore themes of politics, love and personal struggle in innovative ways.
At-TEN-tion Span is presented in a lively atmosphere in which audience members journey to different locations in the Gordon Square Theatre. Each play has its own setting and seating arrangements.
“ Theatre doesn’t always need to be about shutting up, and sitting in the dark. The theatrical experience can be more like an event, a party, a collaboration. The short plays of At-TEN-tion Span are beautiful little works of poetry that can be whimsical, touching, stunning and gorgeous.” –Raymond Bobgan
Created by some of the most interesting director/creators in our community, this is great way for audiences to see our community in new ways and to support the work of local artists.
