Thursday, August 11 to Saturday, August 20 T Plays III Back by Popular Demand! Round III of the T Plays arrive in August. This time we’ll present 7 World Premieres over 4 days. Chance will team up a playwright, director, actors and a T line. The playwright will board the T knowing only the number of characters and the setting (the very T line they are on). At the end of the round trip they turn their freshly written script over to the director and actors. Three days later the shows go up! But there’s more! Every night we’ll be asking the audience to vote on their favorites. At the end of the week the Audience Favorite will be announced. Mill 6 is pleased to present all of the drama, comedy, tragedy and romance a T ride provides.
