December performances rescheduled
We are rescheduling to take advantage of some exciting press coverage that will explore how we are creating a powerful new form of theater with the production of TAPE, and in the process how it draws audiences into a meaningful dialog about ethics, morality and how we treat one another.
Every Little Bit Helps
Our mission is to make extraordinary live theater accessible to broad audiences as economically as possible, but it does take tons of time and some money to make it happen! If you would like to support us on this journey, you may make a tax-deductible donation to TheSharedScreen. We are a 501c3 non-profit corporation and your donation may be tax-deductible.
Live Screen Shots
How We Do It
After 10 years, three self-absorbed people are forced to reckon with the unresolved trauma of a high school love triangle. It’s about friendship and sexual betrayal, rivalry, and retribution. It raises questions about how we face the truth when others’ truths differ from ours. You will meet Vince, a coke-addicted wild-card, who stirs the pot to shake out the truth and get retribution; Amy, an empowered, self-possessed prosecutor, who is setting the record straight, and Jon, a self-absorbed aspiring filmmaker who is forced to face his past.
The "Talkback" After The Show
Please stick around after the show! The actors and creative team will come back on screen to talk with you about the show and your experiences. You can talk live (audio only) or Chat through Q&A.
