I Am Directing A Play / Performance Piece / *~theatre~*

Here is the project description:

One of your friends invites you to coffee. He just broke up with his girlfriend. She was a frigid bitch who was always trying to control his life. He’s happy they broke up.

Ding.

One of your friends invites you to coffee. She just broke up with her boyfriend. He was a cheating asshole who was always trying to control her life. She says good riddance.

Ding.

He Said/She Said is half devised, half improvised theater. As an audience member, you start by sitting with either He or She and discussing their recent break-up. Fifteen minutes into the conversation, a bell rings, He & She stand up, and the play starts over again with a different side of the story sitting in front of you.

Devised over weeks of rehearsal, the actors know the truth of their relationship – how they met, how they fought, how they had sex, how they broke up. But, like all of us, the story has become twisted in their heads. Truth becomes a lie the other tells, lies become the truth they tell themselves.

As an audience member, you can say anything you want to He & She. They are your friends, after all. Interrogate them. Comfort them. Make them angry. Tell them they deserved it. Help them plot their ex’s murder. They are your friends, after all.

Here is information on how to come:
