In August of 2009, Alden Ehrenreich and Zoe Worth started The Collectin, a theater and film company of 35 college age directors, actors, writers, and artists. The Collectin has met every Sunday for "workshop," in which we experiment with improvisational techniques from our vast and varied backgrounds. Over these last eight months, one of our best writers has crafted a play to the strengths of our actors that have manifested in our time together. This play is "THE SOUND", a sad comedy...about Wizards!
