Philadelphia, PA - Philadelphia Theatre Company begins its 46th season with the rolling world premiere of The Days of Re-Creation: A Virtual Play on September 30, 2020, at 7:00 pm.
The Days of Re-Creation: A Virtual Play
The play cycle (a collection of short plays around the same theme) is the brainchild of Deven and Janki, Artistic Director of the company Live & In Color, which commissioned seven proliﬁc playwrights of color, including BD Wong (Tony award-winning actor), Lauren Yee (Signature Theatre resident and writer of Cambodian Rock Band and The Big Leap), and Masi Asare (winner of the Billie Burke Ziegfeld Award), AriDy Nox, SEVAN, Nandita Shenoy, and Philadelphia playwright Erlina Ortiz , who contributed the play La Egoista.
Directed by Rebecca Aparacio, the play features seven 10-minute plays relating to the seven days of creation from the Book of Genesis. Tickets for the play are free, but patrons must register for a link at philatheatreco.org, or by calling 215-985-0420. All performances are performed virtually and are able to be viewed on any streaming device, including YouTube.
Immediately prior to the broadcast, at 6:45 pm, Producing Artistic Director Paige Price will announce the Company’s plans for the 2020-21 Season and new Resident Artist Jeffrey L. Page will be introduced. Price and PTC Managing Director Emily Zeck are focused on shifting programming to the virtual space for the 2020-21 Season.
PTC is excited to meet the challenges of the current moment in two ways — creating opportunities for artists and addressing racial inequity in American theatre with direct action.
