Archipelago at Altered Stages

The Intentional Theatre Group and Small Pond Entertainment., presents Archipelago, 10 short one-person plays at Altered Stages from 8 - 18 Nov 2007.

Archipelago consists of 10 short one-person plays that explore themes of solitude, self, and theatricality.

All of the plays in Archipelago explore the different ways people relate to, and deal with, their own isolation. A woman trapped inside her own mind, a desperate man in a jail cell, an artist with dynamite strapped to her chest, or a boy who finds hope in the seconds after jumping off a building. All of the characters confront, and ultimately come to grips with, the boxes they�ve created for themselves.

The 10 new plays, which are all world premieres, were commissioned by The It Group.
