What is the mandate for “FRESH PRODUCE’d”?
To grow emerging artists and support new plays and screenplays that push storytelling boundaries. Whether it be interactive storytelling, social media integration or multi-media innovation, we want to break free from the linear storytelling mold and bring theater into the 21st century. We do this by assembling trained MFA and equivalent actors and directors from the top theater schools in the country to challenge works in development.
