About this show

Super SLAMBoston features winners of previous slams produced not only by Another Country, but by the theatre companies that have franchised the slam in the 09-10 season! Each of these 10-minute plays captivated audience members with their superlative writing, direction and acting. Watch them compete as five audience members act as judges in a 2-night celebration of multicultural theater to select the ultimate winner! On the second night, the play order is reversed to avoid "score creep" the slam phenomenon of the scores getting higher as the night progresses (judges who score too low get booed in the rowdy audience participation slams are known for, so they often begin to score higher. "This night turned out to be the real Hit of the week," wrote Larry Stark of Theater Mirror after the April 2005 Super Slam. "Eight brand new plays, none of them over fourteen-minutes long, were given the Olympic-Judging treatment, with five judges giving 9.3 - 8.95 scores and Lyralen Kaye acting as breakneck ringmaster for the evening. "Another Country Productions has managed to make these into Must-See evenings of high-voltage theatrics. Don't miss their next one. (I won't!)" Please call 617-939-4846 for groups 10+
