Jenga – FWF 2019 Reading
June 2, 2019 | 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Three new works that place women at the center of the story and the action!
The second annual Fighting Words Festival!
Each year BWBTC selects three scripts for development. Each must have the potential to grow into the kinds of plays that fit BWBTC’s mission. Several of the Fighting Words selections have been seen as full productions with BWBTC, as well as other theatre companies: most recently 180 Degree Rule, Patchwork Drifter, L’Imbecile and Bo Thomas and the Case of the Sky Pirates.
Each 2018-19 script has undergone two reading-and-feedback sessions with the ensemble and invited guests prior to being introduced to the public (and given the BWBTC treatment of including one staged fight) at the Festival in June 2019.
Tickets: FREE ADMISSION! Refreshments and a talkback follow each reading.
FIGHTING WORDS 2018-2019 SELECTION:
Sunday, June 2, 2019 – 3:00pm
by Deborah Yarchun
Fight Choreography: Maureen Yasko*
Yelena returns to her childhood home for the first time in twelve years only to discover that her older sister Simone has transformed it into a “Burning Man-inspired” (and booby-trapped) game-room of fairy wings and glitter. As monstrous noises filter in from an offstage room, the two sisters battle in a series of escalating games over whether or not to finally confront a violent incident from their past.
