What happens when playwrights are quarantined due to a worldwide pandemic? They write plays, of course!! The Pandemic Plays is a series of world premiere one-act plays that react to the COVID-19 world we all share. Portraying coping mechanisms ranging from ill-advised scientific experiments to paper bag puppets to hip hop and more, these plays tell stories about how we’re navigating a world that suddenly feels smaller and less certain.
Each Pandemic Play will be performed live at 18th & Union and broadcast on a live stream. And if we have to lock down again? No problem, performers will stream from their homes. But no matter what, these shows are going on!
