Asking For Trouble 2009: Series A


ASKING FOR TROUBLE is Youngblood’s annual speed-theater freakout.

TWENTY-ONE playwrights draw a director, a cast and a costume piece from a hat, and then have one week to write a script for that director and cast. Inspired by (and utilizing) that costume piece.

ASKING FOR TROUBLE will be performed in two series.
