PANDEMIC PLAYS 20|20: Interactive Storytelling Studio Event
During these unprecedented times, the community of artists at The Ridiculous Project have found that storytelling, even on Zoom, can be an important and effective means of forging connection. Founding Artistic Director, Kate Kohler Amory, is writing a new play “Pandemic Plays 2020” that explores with honesty and humor the layers of chaos that our world, our communities and ourselves have been facing. The play provokes a necessary and inspiring reflection of humanity during the 2020 Pandemic and offers hope for the future. While we are still living through some of these unprecedented times, we invite you to engage with these excerpts from the script in progress. Surely you will be inspired to share your own pandemic story!
