10 OUT OF 12
by Anne Washburn
Directed by Steve Murdock
March 1 to March 31, 2019
Playwright Anne Washburn's (Mr. Burns, a post-electric play) newest, most adventurous work, embarks on a remarkable -- and often brutally honest and funny -- trip into the backstage world of a technical rehearsal. Don a private headset and you'll hear a near-perfect recreation of what goes on behind the scenes, complete with backstage chatter, opening night jitters, potential crises looming large and human stories unfolding. You’ll watch the director struggle to contain the uncontainable.10 Out of 12 is a wry and absorbing look at how work forms us and deforms us.
"The repertoire isn’t exactly skimpy when it comes to plays-within-plays that take us backstage...10 Out of 12 isn't like any of them...I was mezmerized." - Edmonton Journal
