Q: What is BRING A WEASEL AND A PINT OF YOUR OWN BLOOD ?
A: It is a festival of plays: adaptations written by current and former students of Mac Wellman at the Brooklyn College MFA playwriting program. This year's festival will take place in late July 2010 at the East 13th Street Theater, featuring adaptations by alums Corina Copp, Ben Gassman, and Kobun Koluza of stories from The Apocrypha
Directors include Meghan Finn and Julia Jarcho.
Produced by Sara J. Asselin, Ariel Stess, Caitlin Brubacher, LaShea Delaney and Alexandra Collier.
Each year, the Weasel benefit goes a long way toward making the festival possible. Note: If you'd like to contribute but are unable to attend, please contact any of the people listed above or e-mail LaShea Delaney at firstname.lastname@example.org
