This year our source text is Jorge Luis Borges' The Book of Imaginary Beings. Instead of an adaptation using Borges' text, our result is a new play about 14 disparate people on a doomed airplane that contains each passenger's story within another story: a film within a book within a dream within an hallucination. Direction and text by myself, with additional text and staging by the class. I also got to design the sound and lights, which was fun.
The title comes from the preface of the book. Borges describes some monsters as "necessary": we make them up in order to understand the world.
Hope you can see it! We open this weekend only, and it's free!
