10 Out of 12
by Anne Washburn
“And all I could see was the radiant glare from my enemy the exit sign.
And then actors, stumbling around on stage in a radiant glare.”
Directed by Blake Hackler
November 9 – December 3, 2016
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to tech. Around you, a company of 14 is engaged in the very peculiar task of making a new play. You’ll have a seat next to the sound designer as he mixes cues. You’ll eavesdrop on backstage gossip as it happens over headset. You’ll watch the director struggle to contain the uncontainable. Anne Washburn (Mr. Burns) reveals the secret landscape of tech rehearsal while crafting a wondrous, layered and often hilarious world that examines the process of creation. An immersion into the world of the theatre directed by Undermain company member Blake Hackler. 10 Out of 12 is a wry and absorbing look at how work forms us and deforms us.
