Wide Eyed Productions Presents Final Performance of WIDE EYED WINKS, 08/28
This season predicates future seasons by workshopping and reading plays to excite and invigorate theatergoers and the production company alike. Through a series of readings open to the public, Wide Eyed Productions aims to strike a chord within the community.
Each month will feature a twenty-minute segment from three original works by three different writers which are related to, or inspired by that month's theme. This season, each month's theme is one of the seven deadly sins. At the end of each night the audience will be invited to select their favorite of the evening by casting an anonymous ballot. The majority favorite will be named a semifinalist and be invited to submit a full text to Wide Eyed Productions' Artistic Board for consideration for our final round.
Two overall finalists will be chosen and given a full staged reading of their plays at the end of the WINKS series, and one winning text will be chosen based on audience and board votes. This winning text will then be submitted to the New York International Fringe Festival for production.

ABOUT WIDE EYED PRODUCTIONS
Wide Eyed Productions is a New York-based collective dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in the creation of risk-taking, relevant theatre. Through a core ensemble and collaborative process it is our goal to create new theatre that stimulates the imagination and awakens the public's passion for high standards in performing arts.
In 2012, our Founding Artistic Director received the Excellence in Directing Award at the New York International Fringe Festival. In 2010 we joined the League of Independent Theater New York, and in 2009 Wide Eyed was named http://nytheatre.com/ Person of the Year. All of these accomplishments have put Wide Eyed on the map, but what we are the most proud of is our history of producing projects that inspire the company, along with returning and new audience members. Since the beginning we have allowed the company to grow organically and let artists do what they do best: Create.
