Theatre is by its nature ephemeral. Yeah sure you can take photos, even video a performance or two, but by doing so you’re actually creating another medium of art. The medium of theatre is live performance in front of an audience – and each performance is therefore unique and irreplaceable. I believe that it is because of these characteristics that we are driven to think of the next show as soon as we start the process of mounting our current show. We know that the current experience must end and so we plan the following experience to keep the magic alive.
Plays are also hard to find, plays that resonate, plays that work for your venue, your collaborators, your community. New plays are even harder to find. So, when you walk into a basement theater in the business capital of New Zealand and get blown away by a new play by a young female writer that you can cast immediately from the pool of actors in the Triangle; well, you just have to snag the rights as soon as possible.
It’s too soon to make a formal announcement but the second show for Common Wealth Endeavors has been discovered and retained. There will be a show after THE INNOCENTS. So book your tickets now for our debut and join the mailing list to be the first to hear about our follow-up!
