Attention, anyone who’s ever wanted to audition for the Paper Machete!
Now’s your chance. Please come read something at our open incubator series, The Mash. Prepare either a 1000-word, 3rd-person essay OR a 6-minute character monologue (or sketch if you’re a team). Make sure it’s based on something happening in the current week’s headlines. Other than these rules, anything goes.
The Mash is a loose, informal jam, but it’s helped us find some great writers and performers over the years. Don’t be afraid to come give it a whirl.
