Wide Eyed Productions to Continue 'Winks' Series with Pride-Themed Plays, 4/24

By: Apr. 23, 2014

Wide Eyed Productions presents Wide Eyed Winks, A Season of Development at Wide Eyed Productions, February 27th through August 28th, 2014 - the last Thursday of every month at 7:30 p.m.!

All performances are at The Drama League Theater Center, 32 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY 10013 Ground Floor, Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley Studio. Entry - $5 contribution. Refreshments available - $5 contribution.

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.
