Brandywine Distillery Fire began as an attempt to destroy storytelling. Or an attempt to tell story in the way that Jackson Pollack paints landscapes. Playmakers Michael Gardner and Matthew Freeman conjectured that to develop a theater work in the "wrongest" way possible might be a liberating experience for artists and audiences alike. They proceeded with a series of workshops. In the workshops, they led a process of improvising a play from scratch. And failing. Deliberately. And writing it down. And failing further.
