365 Days/365 Plays
by Suzan-Lori Parks
From Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks, 365 Days/365 Plays is a collection of plays, one written each day for a year. After this year unlike any we’ve known, we explore moments of theatre, calendar days, days where nothing is going on, days that change us and our world and us in the world. We mark the passage of time, where we lose time, how we pass time, our pastimes. We work to understand who we are to each other, in glimpses and days. We dig for meaning and connection, circling the holes in our hearts and histories.
We will share two evenings of theatre, thirty-three plays over two nights. A contemplative, abstract riff on the passing of time, 365 Days/365 Plays explores how we are haunted by history, how we hope, what wonders we unearth when we get to digging.
