Submissions for TWBW #4 closed a little over two weeks ago, and we here at VTG have been drowning in your talent ever since. Shorts, comedies, histories, tragedies, and even movement pieces have crossed our desk, with some amazing, gut busting, heart wrenching works glowing in the pile. This go around, you’ve sent us the most plays yet in the short history of TWBW, and it has been a pleasure to discover the depth of creativity in Boston.
After much internal debate, and a Hunger Games-esque battle to the finish*, we have finally chosen the script we’ll be presenting live and on stools (with script stands!) at Trident Booksellers and Cafe:
Paper City Phoenix by Walt McGough!
Paper City Phoenix, in the playwright’s own words, is “an explosive comedy exploring how we connect when we’re always connected.” The show is fantastically energetic, and brings forth some great discussion on identity, love, technology, and memory and how we as a society have incorporated all of those ideas into our lives in the light of the others.
We think you’re all going to dig it.
So join us! There Will Be Words: 4th Edition will go down on Thursday, September 13th, at 7pm. As always, the lovely people at Trident Booksellers & Cafe will be our gracious hosts (338 Newbury Street, Boston).
Come on down, grab a coffee or beer, some food, watch a reading, and Q some A’s. A great time is sure to be had by all. You can RSVP to our Facebook Event and we hope to see you there!
Until then, thanks from all of us at VTG.
