Playwrights Horizons presents the return of its unique benefit evening Stories On 5 Stories. The event will feature new works by seven of the theater's alumni writers: Billy Aronson, Keith Bunin, Julia Cho, Wendy MacLeod, Kira Obolensky, Peter Parnell and Pulitzer Prize finalist and Obie Award winner Adam Rapp.
The theme of the fourth annual Stories On 5 Stories will be Dreamstate -- "What keeps you up at night? Do you have an unrealized aspiration, wish or hope for yourself or our world?" At this year's event, the seven alumni artists will be partnering to address some of these questions through words and music.
The initial playlets will be performed concurrently, each repeated several times in their own space. They will be performed by separate casts, and attendees will travel from location to location to view each work. The evening will culminate with all attendees seeing one final work in the Mainstage Theater, which will be co-written by no less than three of the writers. The only way for theatergoers to find out who's working with whom, and see the results of their collaborations, will be to attend the event.
