WORD FOR WORD
The power of documentary theater is to tell stories of the human condition, to shed light on issues large and small, and to bring an audience community together.
--Lisa Rafferty, Professor, BSU
The talented students of Bridgewater State University's Lab Theatre course have collaborated to create three profound, poignant and comedic plays for WORD FOR WORD.
Removing the Mask offers a compassionate look at depression and suicide, and ends on a note of hope; Growing Up Stories shares memories and anecdotes about the holidays; Screenshot includes the ways we experience technology in our lives, for ill and for good.
Every word spoken in these pieces has been carefully transcribed verbatim from over 30 interviews, and other sources.
A concert reading of the short, compelling documentary play AS I AM by emerging playwright Skye Corbin, begins the production.
The outstanding cast of BSU students share their talent to honor a wide range of characters, at times playing people who differ from themselves in age, race, type. In doing so, they represent a community and universal truth about what connects us all.
