The return of THE MASH!
Attention, anyone who’s ever wanted to audition for the Paper Machete!
Now’s your chance. Please come read something at our open incubator series, The Mash. Prepare either a 1000-word, 3rd-person essay OR a 6-minute character monologue (or sketch if you’re a team). Make sure it’s based on something happening in the current week’s headlines. Other than these rules, anything goes.
The Mash is a loose, informal jam, but it’s helped us find some great writers and performers over the years. Don’t be afraid to come give it a whirl.
Sunday, 7/26. 3pm. High-Hat Club, 1920 W Irving Park. Free.
