Playwright Slam

Mario Farwell Uploaded by Mario Dexter Farwell
St. Louis Writers' Group Presents: Playwright Slam
SLAM Theater invites artists and audiences to get involved in the process of making theater. Playwrights bring fresh scripts, and actors are called out of a hat to perform timed segments, completely unrehearsed. After each round, the judges score the plays, moving the top-scoring plays to the next round. Winning writers get to unveil more of their work, acting as director or bringing one in to give timed notes. SLAM is an evening of theater with impromptu performance, spontaneous collaboration, and friendly competition. Its raw, its rowdy, its real.
