What’s up in December


Sleep is for the Weak 24-Hour Play Festival

Reserve free tickets HERE


For the fourth consecutive year, SLEEP IS FOR THE WEAK will connect local new play artists with one another and stretch the limits of unlikely collaborations. In the span of 24 continuous hours, dozens of artists will work together to write, rehearse, and perform seven original works. With playwrights locked in the theatre overnight, this is a new play series with the blood of a reality competition.

Playwrights, directors, and actors will be randomly grouped and then together face challenges constructed to encourage risk-taking in the creative process. Each team will tackle its own production condition, with one group creating an original ten minute musical, for which they will be joined by a composer and musicians.

Though the framework has been created by Theatre Battery, the content is completely in the hands of the participating artists and the most up-to-date expression of their world. Participants include Theatre Battery regulars, past collaborators from main stage and developmental projects, and a host of new entries from the Puget Sound area.

The 2016 festival company includes:

Playwrights: Jessica Andrewartha, Amontaine Aurore, Stacy Flood, Joshua Hamilton, Kait Mahoney, Matthew Reed (Composer), Mari Salinas, Seayoung Yim

Directors: Omar Forrest, Scott Francis, Parker Kennedy, Phillip Lacey, Mic Montgomery, Nicole Sleiers, Kathryn Stewart

Actors: Jessica Askew, Jaron Boggs, Caitlin Castro, Laura Dux, Melissa Fleming, Arika Gloud, Yasmin Habib, Annelih GH Hamilton, Lauren Christianne Hardcastle, Charles Hawkins, Lia Lee, Kevin Lin, Danielle Alexis Nicole Mitchell, Tamanh Nguyen, Maizy Perdue, Jim Quatier, Aviona Rodriguez-Brown, Tiana Ross, Anna Saephan, Corey Spruill, Emily Jo Testa, Brittney Townsend, Owen Yen

And more to be announced.
