The Public kicks off the New York premiere of Suzan-Lori Parks' 365 Days / 365 Plays, a national year-long festival, by staging the first week of the play cycle on November 13th. Tickets at The Public are FREE.
In November 2002, the Pulitzer prize-winning Parks sat down and committed to writing a play a day for the next 365 days. For the 2006-07 Season, The Public will produce the New York premiere of these works by gathering together a widely diverse cross-section of New York's theater companies to participate in this project. Over the course of one year, the selected theaters - curated by The Public, Suzan-Lori Parks and Producer Bonnie Metzger - will each perform one week of these brief, brilliant snapshots from the imagination of one of America's leading playwrights. This will be part of a yearlong national festival of the play cycle that will take place in major cities around the country including Atlanta, Los Angeles and Denver.
At the end of each month, the participating theaters will be invited to perform their week of 365 Days / 365 Plays at The Public Theater, in a presentation that will be free to the public.
