In June, 2006, they launched NEW CITY , NEW BLOOD, a play reading series designed to serve our audiences and writers even better. Curated by Michael Scott-Price, TNC Literary Manager, NEW CITY , NEW BLOOD will provide a hearing for worthy plays in earlier stages of Development. Audiences will get the opportunity to provide feedback, and artists will gain valuable insight from audience response. Wine and Cheese provided. COME EAT AND DRINK AND MEET THE WRITER! Auto Graphic Novel is a collage play about the major events in my life, both real and imagined, that led me to become an artist. It combines the interior world of narrative prose with a visceral theatre of images that mimics the dream-like experience of personal memoir. The play incorporates live action, dance, ghosts, interactive video and electronic sound to constantly shift the spectator's point of view. In this way, Auto graphic novel conveys the beautifully absurd, nonlinear journey of coming full circle.
