Clarence Coo

directed by Kareem Fahmy

Set in 1990s and 2010s New York City, The God of Wine is an adaptation about the life and murder of British playwright Joe Orton. Clarence Coo and his collaborators will be spending the day reading an early draft of the script, and will attempt to weave together two narrative threads, set 16 years apart, within the same Brooklyn apartment.

This process is closed to the public.

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 Bake-Off is a tool to help writers write a first draft quickly. Some folks have called it a method for getting out of your own way. Paula Vogel's Bake-Offs are famous for their design and ingredients... and, of course, for bringing forth many exceptional and beautiful plays.
