Get ready for a mildly spooky and majorly fun double feature of one act plays written through a collective devising process with teaching artist Liz Ellis.
Diner 66: The Musical Without Songs
Diner 66 was created in class on the BPA stage in 2016 with movement direction by Helen Heaslip and fight choreography by Ken Michels. It tells the story of a disliked FBI agent upon whom is foisted the undesirable task of visiting the tiny (and rapidly shrinking) town of West to root out their local serial killer. The bulk of the play takes place in the local diner among the somewhat goofy remaining townsfolk.
Subject 265 was also created in class, but this time over Zoom! The students definitely wanted to explore isolation and social media, (as you'll hear), but made sure to do it in the most entertaining way possible. Both scripts were written through a collective process known as devising, something Ellis has been teaching to teens at BPA (off and on) since 2012.
