Act One, Scene Two

Act One, Scene Two
Live theater can't get any more live than this! Each performance features a different guest playwright with Act One, Scene One of an unfinished play. The Un-Scripted Theater Company interviews the playwright onstage, performs their scene while reading it for the first time, and then goes on to finish the play -- now without a script -- starting from Act One, Scene Two. It's a blend of scripted and un-scripted that exposes the electric heart of live theater.

Starring in Rotation: * Aaron Saenz * Christian Utzman * Clay Robeson * Greg Shilling * Joy Carletti * Mandy Khoshnevisan * Merrill Gruver * Stacy Mayer * Steven Westdahl.

If you're interested, you can still read the submission guidelines.

("Early submissions, you say?" Don't worry, we're not cheating: Alan, our literary manager/dramaturg, read all the submissions, but he won't show them to anyone else. The first time the ACTORS will ever lay eyes on the script will be at its first performance, live in front of an audience.)
