Beginning in September, The Tank and Full Circle Theatre Company are producing a monthly staged reading series featuring plays in the public domain with no copyright restrictions. Once a play has entered public domain, it belongs to everyone. It becomes ours to do with as we please. As such, we thought it’d be cool if we offered up some of the creative decision-making to our audiences. We’ve selected our first seven plays, and seven directors with very different approaches. We had our audiences assign a play to each director. Polls closed on July 6th and the results are in!


September 23, 24: Garrett Zuercher directs Philoctetes by Sophocles
October 21, 22: Andrew Scoville directs The Tragical Comedy of Dr. Faustus by Christopher Marlowe
November 18, 19: Andrew Neisler directs Ivanov by Anton Chekhov
December 16, 17: Homunculus Mask Theater Company directs RUR by Karel Capek
February 17, 18: Michael Laibson directs Anna Christie by Eugene O’Neill
March 17, 18: Zoe Farmingdale directs Life is a Dream by Pedro Calderón de la Barca
April 21, 22: Rafael Gallegos directs Demetrius by Frederich Schiller

“Dude you are crazy! You only turn twenty-one once, what do you mean you don’t want to make a big deal out of it? Face it, you’re the number one selling video game console of ALL FREAKIN’ time, and thanks to the hard working programmers of such software as NANOLOOP, LSDJ, and TRIPPYH, responsible for some of the most banging performers eve to grace the stage of Pulsewave.

What do you mean you just want to spend a nice quiet night at home with your friends? Pulsewave is throwing a party just for you and your hundred closest friends. Without you, the last triple dozen or so Pulsewave events would have been total dudes, and to celebrate that they have put together a line-up that is of the utmost sickness! So there is only one thing this show is missing, and that’s YOU DUDE. Be there or be squarewave. Wait.. where are you going? Listen I’m sorry.. I wont make that kind of joke again.. DUDE!”

(Shout out to Rob at BoingBoing!)
