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
