Probably nobody checks our blog anymore as it's been a really long time since anyone wrote on it. But we've been doing things like crazy and are very excited to announce our summer 2008 project, a tour of "Talking to Terrorists," a play by Robin Soans.
The verbatim play is complied from interviews conducted with terrorists in different organizations from around the world, foreign service workers, hostages and others whose lives have been affected by terrorism. We are inspired by its journalistic approach to theater and the discussion topics it provides.
After a three-week rehearsal residency at the Ucross Foundation in Wyoming in July, we will go on a three-week tour, stopping in Sheridan, Wyoming at the Carriage House Theater, Salt Lake City at the Rose Wagner Theater, and McCall, Idaho at the Alpine Playhouse. We cast the piece last month and will be taking eight Vassar students, one student from the University of Puget Sound and one from Sheridan with us. We will begin our fundraising process later this month. To get on our mailing list or to donate, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also have a new website up, www.nofogwest.org, that has a lot of information about our last production and the company, so check it out!
This will be another amazing summer! And we will update the blog more regularly.
