Writing Is Live Festival- Back East Out West by Laura Colella
BACK EAST OUT WEST
written and directed by Laura Colella
Nick, an aging B-movie actor, returns to his "ancestral home" to help his sister Angela take care of their dying brother. He may be more trouble than he's worth, however. Decades of cocaine addiction have given him a penchant for talking jags and lying, and his new relationship with a young heroin addict doesn't help much either. When their much younger brother David shows up, his alien presence is even more disruptive, bringing caregiver Angela to the end of her rope.
The fourth annual Writing is Live festival is a presentation of new works featuring plays by writers in Brown’s graduate and undergraduate theatre programs. Writing is Live celebrates the diversity and strength of new theatrical voices while simultaneously exploring the meaning of text in performance. Performance writing may take forms complete and incomplete, narrative and imagistic, compact or durational, so the festival stresses and plays with the idea of the Live, allowing the development and evolution of new work in conversation with the writer, directors, actors, designers, and audience. All are collaborators in the exciting life of the new performance script
9 Duncan Avenue
Hosted by the Theatre Arts and Performance Studies Department, Rights and Reason, Brown/Trinity MFA Programs and the Production Workshop.
