This miniature Festival-within-the-Festival-within-the-Festival will be action-packed with some of the freshest material in Fertile Ground 2022. How do we know this? Because the work is created on the brink of the submission deadline and the projects will be cast, written, rehearsed and performed live all within 48 hours! The virtual cousin to our popular Crazy Dukes event, ZOOM INstant is equally incredible. Think of it as theatre on a high wire with no net. Six talented playwrights will obtain four required prompts suggested by the audience—an action, theme, line of dialogue and prop—and randomly assigned a small cast of actors. The playwrights will then write, rehearse and direct their 10-minute plays for performance 48 hours later as a raw, live event in one collective take. Fertile Ground will present the inevitably wild results of this spectacular event as part of the PDXP Lunchtime Series. Participating playwrights who have hopped aboard the crazy train include Maren Anderson, Valerie Asbel, Irvin Jones, Peter Korn, Stan Mathews and John McDonald. It’s close-up, zoom-by, crazy creativity—guaranteed amazing.
