Treats for your ears this Saturday! Listen to The Triangle Bake-Off!

Imagine you have just 2 days to write a 10 minute play using the following ingredients:

What would you write? 

Might you find freedom and focus by having those restrictions?

What would your bake-off ingredients look like? 

[Hint: This would be a great writing exercise for you to take on with a group of friends as a weekend writing sprint just for fun or for distraction. If you are having a tough time generating a list of ingredients, then let me know, and I’ll send you some. See below for links to the origin of the Bake-Off.]

In early April, the Women’s Theatre Festival released the list of required ingredients above, and eighteen NC playwrights stepped up to create their speedily written masterpieces.

This weekend, you can listen to their freshly baked plays! 

Saturday, May 16th at 2:00 pm ALL of the submitted plays will be read back-to-back online. Listen via this link https://www.twitch.tv/wtheatrefestivalnc, then VOTE for your favorite. 

A suggested donation of $5 is requested for the afternoon’s entertainment to Paypal.me/wtfestivalnc or via the WTF website.

One Audience Choice play will join four Adjudicator Choices at the Women’s Theatre Festival’s #OccupyTheStage2020 for a reading. As Piedmont Laureate, I have the honor of working with the playwrights to continue developing their work for that event.
