25 Murals. 25 short audio plays.
25 world premiere micro audio plays from some of the most exciting national and local playwrights. Each play corresponds with a different mural located around the city of Flint!
During the pandemic, Flint Rep is looking for ways to translate our work into new mediums and bring theatre directly to the community. FLINTMURAL PLAYS is part of our re-imagined season "FLINT REP OUTSIDE" which features exciting and ambitious programming all outside of the box and our building. Inspired by the Flint Public Art Project, we hope to get people out into Flint's different neighborhoods to experience theatre, this beautiful artwork and the city in exciting new ways.
FLINT MURAL PLAYS features new audio plays from Mando Alvarado (Post No Bills), Hunter Bell (Title of Show) & Ebony Vines, Kyle Clark, singer-songwriter "Danielle Ate The Sandwich", Destiny Dunn, Rebecca Gilman (Spinning Into Butter), Derek Gregor & Selda Sahin (GRIND), Lauren Gunderson (I and You), Harvey, Kenn Hopkins Jr., Greg Kotis (Urinetown), Jenni Lamb, Craig Lucas (The Light in the Piazza), Douglas Lyons (Chicken and Biscuits), Leah Maddrie, Alex Moggridge (The Boatman), Eliana Pipes, Emilio Rodriguez, Nandita Shenoy (Washer/Dryer), Harrison David Rivers (Broadbend, Arkansas) and Josh Wilder (Wrong River).
The project also features work from University of Michigan Flint student playwrights Taylor Boes, David Guster, Olivia Maxwell-Cook, Andrea Orpinel and Enrique Vargas.
