'Tune in' to New Play Festival PDF Print
Tuesday, 27 November 2007 20:37

A unique event hits the Greer Studio stage at Appalachian State University tonight- the Playcrafters’ New Play Festival.

'Tune in' to the New Play FestivalThe annual event premieres two student-written plays and show times are 8 p.m. tonight through Saturday.


ASU theatre veteran Kelsey Head directs Peter Lundblad’s “100 Ways to Everywhere”- an exploration of the idea of enlightenment through the eyes of an instructional manual author and street bum.

Lundblad’s play will be followed by the premiere of first-time playwright Alex Genther’s “Tuning In,”- a production that couch potatoes might particularly enjoy.


“We’ve recreated watching TV onstage, and that’s been a major process.”


That’s ASU alumnus and director Luke Aeschleman. He says a giant eight by eight television is just part of what makes the experience unique. The production uses improvisational actors- so each night will be an original production.


“It’s been a new process for me because I’ve never really done anything that was unscripted before.”
