Write or Flight DEPARTURES


An experiment in how your environment affects your writing.


Isolated. Haunted. Creepy. Uneasy. Frightening.


At ten pm on Friday, February 12th

Four brave playwrights will be taken to disturbing locations

to write and hone a one-act play.


How did it affect the writing?




Write or Flight ARRIVALS


At 8pm on Saturday, February 13th


1-283 Northfield Dr. Waterloo (near Bridge)


The playwrights will return, scripts in hands.

The plays will be read, the directors assigned and the plays will be cast.

This gives us a minimum of 11 days to get these plays stage-ready.


Each night of UnHinged, one play will be presented, along with the main-stage play, with a talk back to follow.
