Democracy Festival Opens June 1st - World Likely To End
The Democracy Festival (in which I proudly participate) will open this week with No Second Acts: A Collection of Short American Lives. It features brief plays by Gyda Arber, Eric Bland, James Comtois, Ian W. Hill, Jeff Lewonczyk, Justin Maxwell, August Schulenburg, Crystal Skillman, Alexis Sottile and Stephanie Swirsky. After this, the world ends, maybe. I predict it will. And that is all I need to do.
There are two programs.
Program A features work by Lewonczyk, Maxwell, Schulenburg, Skillman, and Swirsky
Program B features work by Arber, Bland, Comtois, Hill, and Sottile
To excite you, here are some interviews with the participants.
James Comtois (still alive!)
