Event description

Description

The theatre has a long tradition of being the place where battling political ideologies, conflicting philosphical worldviews, and varying theologies can be translated into captivating stories and performances. With just a bit of distance, audience members can watch conflicts they may have a stake in a bit more dispassionately and with a critical, rational eye. Sometimes, these conflicts are lightened and made comedic; at other times, allegory or metaphor softens the rancor; in the best case scenario, watching a character onstage allows audience members to identify with and begin to empathize with someone who looks and thinks much differently than they do.

To that end, Seat of the Pants Productions will present an entire summer season of plays, entitled ACTS OF DISSENT, that do just this: dramatize and "storify" some of the conflicts that exist in America today in an effort to move hearts and open minds, thereby creating an avenue for increased understanding and potential dialogue.

The plays are:

THAT CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON, by Jason Miller: A Staged Reading (May 19-21)

CHESAPEAKE, by Lee Blessing: A One Man Show (June 9-18)

A BRIGHT ROOM CALLED DAY, by Tony Kushner (July 14-23)

THE CHRISTIANS by Lucas Hnath (August 18-27)
