Creativity Fund: Clarence Coo

Sep 13 2014 - 11:00am -- Sep 18 2014 - 6:00pm

People Sitting in Darkness
by Clarence Coo
directed by Pirronne Yousefzadeh

In this comic adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream set in the early 20th-century Philippines, a small town prepares to stage a performance for their American occupiers. Their play, based on an American novel about a young boy and an escaped slave rafting down the Mississippi, will either earn the townspeople their freedom --or more trouble from the US military.

The working portion of this Creativity Fund project is closed. There will be a public presentation of the work on Thursday, September 18.

The Creativity Fund offers playwrights extended time to explore and develop new plays and musicals up to five days.

The Creativity Fund is made possible by a lead grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and sustained by significant support from the Time Warner Foundation and the Scherman Foundation's Katharine S. and Axel G. Rosin Fund.
