Boston Theater Marathon XXII: Special Zoom Edition Anthology
For more than two decades, the Boston Theater Marathon has brought together playwrights, directors, and theatre companies in an effort to foster collaboration between artists and producers. Plays are chosen from approximately 400 submissions from New England playwrights annually, and the selected plays are produced—in a single 10-hour day—by New England theatre companies donating their time to this event. Generously supported over the years by the Boston University Center for the Humanities and by individual donations, the BTM gives net proceeds to the Theatre Community Benevolent Fund, which helps area theatre artists and companies in crisis. In 2000, the BTM received a special Elliot Norton Award from the Boston Theatre Critics Association for “enlivening local theatre.”
The “traditional” version of the BTM was cancelled in 2020 due to the escalating coronavirus pandemic in the U.S., and Boston Theater Marathon XXII: Special Zoom Edition was born. The event took place as a daily lunch break each day at noon—one play each day for almost seven weeks—via the videoconferencing tool Zoom.
The plays in this anthology run the gamut of theatricality, from drama to comedy, from satire to social commentary, and all of them are by New England playwrights. Get yours today for just $20.
