CALL TO ACTION: National UBU ROI Bake-Off

PRESIDENT’S DAY: Monday, February 19, 2018

Paula Vogel sounded the call,…5 theatre artists and 1 sculptor in Frederick, Maryland answered!

We modified Vogel’s rules for a collaborative playwriting “bake-off” to fit our small merry band of writers: David Allerton, Kevin Cole, Amber George, Sarah Hempel Irani and Lydia Hadfield. Dramaturg David Allerton prepared and delivered background knowledge on Alfred Jarry’s Ubu Roi: its historical, social and cultural context. The party then watched Geoff Dunbar’s 20 minute animated short adaption of Ubu Roi to foment recognition, outrage and inspiration. Next? Riotous creative catharsis! Theatre professional Doug Grove arrived just in time to read the part of Chipmunk #2.
