A play written over the internet, yet good.

In Which Direction Home?, eight of the member-directors have created new shows which will be brought from six different countries and are, according to their website, “inspired (more or less) by Homer’s epic poem.”

As producer Cathy Bencivenga says, “I hesitate to call them all plays."

[Jake] Witlen’s production has a text that was “wiki”-ed by 10 playwrights from around the world.*

from the Brooklyn Rail article about The Internationalists' Which Direction Home? Festival, which starts July 21.
