The Bloomington Playwrights Project's 2009 Ballot Box Blizzard offers thirty plays by twenty-four playwrights in just a little over two hours. In fitting with IU and Bloomington's Arts Week the theme, broadly interpreted, is politics. The audience gets to vote on their favorites and during the two brief intermissions there are energetic conversations as the electorate conference over their decisions and mark their ballots. WFIU's George Walker has more.
The Bloomington Playwrights Project's annual festival of thirty, three minute plays, this year is keyed to Bloomington and IU's Arts Week with politics as the theme. Co-producer Holly Holbrook talks with WFIU's George Walker about putting it together. And director and playwright April Smallwood discusses her own work and how important theatre is for her.
