The Plurality of Privacy Project in Five-Minute Plays (P3M5) is a transatlantic theater project initiated to explore the value of privacy. In cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Washington, theaters across the United States and Europe have commissioned playwrights to write five-minute plays themed around the question, "What does privacy mean to you in the digital age?" The results are being presented in different formats by a network of theaters between January 2017 and June 2018. These performances, staged readings, and community forums create an artistic and cultural dialogue centered around varying American and European understandings of privacy.
Note: Performance dates and locations vary. For more information, visit the Goethe-Institut website (URL below).
A young couple is challenged when a husband asks his wife to partake in a thrill-seeking adventure — skydiving — to solve their marital problems. As the wife processes the request, the couple begins to see each other and their marriage in a new light. Alison Lowenstein has written a witty, smart, and hilarious comedy about the fragile nature of relationships.
American Renaissance Theater Company presents WinterWorks 2018: Look Me in the Eyes, an engaging observation of couples and coupling taking place at the intimate Directors Studio of the Directors Company starting January 24 and running through February 4. Whether it be old love, new love, borrowed love or blue love, Look Me in the Eyes offers a distinctive variety of couples. In an informal, "up close and personal" setting, nine actors, six playwrights, and a poet explore the ways in which we stay together...or don't. Their portrayals range from longtime married partners to others on the brink of commitment, from cherished companions to strangers meeting in a park, from couples united by their fears to those whose insecurities make it difficult to trust. All material was developed in the Workshop at ARTC, a professional, intergenerational company of talented newcomers working alongside veterans of stage, screen, and television.
