ABOUT THE SHOW: "Blank Slate" is a large scale experiment in developing an original stage play using an unusual collaborative process. Based on the critically successful development of "The Matriarchs" for Rude Guerrilla Theater's 7 Deadly Sins collection, implementing tested techniques that directors, R.J. Romero & Scott Williams have developed and implemented in previous shows at other venues, an ensemble cast will be guided through a series of exercises, improvisations, and collaborative development activities in order to generate a final text. This production will deliver a world premiere original script in 8-12 weeks of rehearsal. This is not an "improv" show, nor is it "sketch comedy". Both those forms are fun and entertaining, but the goal here is entirely different. Together the creative team and the ensemble will discover: character, conflict, catharsis; and create an original story to tell together. Let go of any expectations, this show will be unusually unique! This show will begin at the opposite end of the spectrum from most productions -- with a production team, hand selected actors, and literally-- a blank slate. Every member of the production will have a say, and be expected to contribute to the development of the script. The creative team, lead by Romero & WIlliams, will continually take in the words, actions and other contributions from the cast and More info will be posted on facebook.
