ThinkTank teams uponce again with TampaRep to present

THE CRUCIBLE, by Arthur Miller, a powerful play that explores the dangers of

religious extremism, mass hysteria, and the scapegoating of innocent people.

Set in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692, the play tells the story of a group of young girls who begin to exhibit strange behavior, claiming to be possessed by the devil. As the hysteria spreads, innocent people are accused of witchcraft and put to death. The Crucible is a thrilling and still unfortunately relevant reminder of the importance of critical thinking and the dangers of blindly following authority.

 

WINNER: Tony Award for Best Play, 1953

Recommended for ages 10+ due to adult themes and violent moments

She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans, a young woman grieving for her deceased sister. The Evans sisters never were especially close, but after Tilly’s death Agnes receives a notebook containing a game scenario created by her sister. She discovers that Tilly was a well-known Dungeons & Dragons player, and that she was passionate about online fantasy gaming. In order to unlock more secrets about her mysterious young sibling, Agnes recruits a “dungeon master” named Chuck to help her understand and grieve Tilly. Chock-full of supermodel elves, dominatrix warrior women, and nasty ogres, She Kills Monsters is a surprisingly sweet tale of friendship, loss, and acceptance

ThinkTank’s TYA Playwrights Festival is a developmental program dedicated to providing a working forum for progressive and forward-thinking TYA productions for today’s theatres. The goal is a collaborative workshop process, with local Tampa Bay Theatre professionals and members of our YAE Company, allowing time for playwrights to hear and adapt their work. Submissions for the festival will open to playwrights across North America in January of 2024. The festival reading panel will narrow down submitted plays to no more than four plays for the festival show case. For the 2023 Play Fest, over 470 plays were submitted from across North America and two were selected to festival show case.

In addition to the selected play readings, ThinkTank will also fully produce one of the plays from 2023’s Play Fest selections as part of the 2024 Festival. 

Recommended ages vary due to content
