Theatre artists from all over the world will come together to share live theatre with audiences everywhere in the comfort of their own homes, or wherever they have access to the internet. ALL proceeds will be distributed to participating artists that have been financially impacted by the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Fifteen PLAYWRIGHTS will write one original monologue each. Fifteen DIRECTORS will be matched with a script and one of fifteen ACTORS to rehearse via teleconference, culminating in a live event streaming worldwide.
THEATRE IS THE CURE will be held weekly each Friday evening until artists can once again sit together in a darkened room and enjoy the magic of theatre in-person.

Interested playwrights, directors, and actors should email firstname.lastname@example.org. In the Subject line of your email, please indicate whether you are a PLAYWRIGHT, DIRECTOR, or ACTOR. Be sure to attach a resumé as well.

This event is being curated and produced by the award-winning and critically-acclaimed Logan Squared Productions, which has received “Critic’s Pick”, “Best Bet” and many “must-sees” for their annual THAT 24-HOUR THING theatre event at the San Diego International Fringe Festival. Hannah Logan produces it with her graphic designer partner, Ron, and says, “We already have people responding from all over the world; Venezuela, Italy, and Australia. A director who already has the virus is joining us as a participant. This is a worldwide crisis but theatre is the cure for that feeling that we are alone in our experience. Our venues were shut down, but let’s create a Worldwide Theatre Pandemic. Let’s bring entertainment, inspiration, humor, hope, and faith into homes everywhere. Your home is our theatre. Please join us.”
