Asking For Trouble 2008: Series B


ASKING FOR TROUBLE 2008: more trouble than you can handle

Youngblood just turned FIFTEEN – and to celebrate a decade and a half of supporting the best young playwrights, we’ve invited them all back to the fold for our annual SPEED THEATRE CHALLENGE.

Forty-one Youngblooders past and present drew the names of a director and a cast of actors from a hat, and have ONE WEEK to write them a short play, which have (less than) ONE WEEK to rehearse before going up in Youngblood’s biggest short play festival ever.

Forty-one writers. Thirty-five directors. One hundred and twenty actors. Fifteen years of Youngblood. And only one ASKING FOR TROUBLE
