Join Artist-in-Residence Sarah Krohn and reading volunteers as they read excerpts from Sarah’s recent work. Following the reading there will be time for feedback regarding the play and Q&AREGISTER
During her BAC residency, Sarah Krohn will research and write TMI: A Play for Eight Actors and a High School Orchestra. Set in a contemporary high school, TMI builds on the tradition of theatrical farce, using stream-of-consciousness speech as the primary storytelling vehicle. The spaces in the play—physical, digital, psychological—are entirely constructed from language. The play considers how the immediacy and abundance of information in the digital era intersects with age-old human dilemmas.
