Personal History Volumes I-V: Abridged


Personal History Volumes I-V: Abridged

Written by Rachel Bonds, Joshua Conkel*, Patrick Link, Anna Moench & Jason Platt

Directed by the 2010-11 EST Resident Directors Jason Bruffy, Jessica Fisch, Morgan Gould, Heidi Handelsman & Pirronne Yousefzadeh

How do our personal histories become intertwined? Five EST resident directors posed this question to five playwrights, challenging them to compose a single play, with each writer contributing an installment and passing the baton to the next. The result is a collaborative exploration of loneliness, absent family members, lost pets, and the enduring power of the dance-off.

With Allison Altman, Denny Bess*, Evan Enderle, Timur Kocak+, Kate Levy+, Maria McConville+, Anna O'Donoghue+, Katie Schorr, Kim Tolksdorf, Amanda Tudesco, Amir Wachterman
