| Performances in October 2017
Dates and venue to be announced by April 30, 2017
For the new Expand Upon staged reading series, the community selected the theme “Institutional Racism” for the first round, and Mirror Stage commissioned two local Seattle playwrights to each write a 30-minute piece, using the same multi- generational, multi-racial cast. The first script read for a small invited audience will take place in mid-May, and performances will be in mid-October, dates and location to be announced.
Theatre That Gets People Talking, Mirror Stage’s innovative staged reading series engage the community in examining and discussing topical issues from different perspectives. Presented without costumes or sets, the emphasis on the text encourages audiences to create their own imagined world inhabited by the play’s characters. Following every performance, a moderated discussion with the audience and artists explores the issues raised in more depth.
