Blamed Off Broadway
Start: Jun 28, 2017 - End: Sep 10, 2017
Blamed: An Established Fiction began as a production at the La Habra High School Theater Guild when the directors realized there was a lack of good plays for an all female cast. In the following three years, the play was developed and workshopped for the San Diego Fringe Festival (where it won Best Drama) in 2015 and the Hollywood Fringe Festival (where it won a Scholarship and was nominated for Best Dance/Physical Theatre and Top of the Fringe) in 2017. Now, we have a chance to take Blamed Off-Broadway.
The Fringe Encore Series at the Soho Playhouse sends scouts to Fringe Festivals around the world: Edinburgh, Adelaide, Brighton, Winnebago, and Hollywood. Blamed was selected from the Hollywood Festival to bring our stories to the Soho Playhouse for a week of performances in September.
Taking such a large show (complete with shadow puppets, vintage props, and a full cast and live band) across the country is a massive and very expensive undertaking. We need flights, housing, and help with our production costs. We humbly ask you to consider giving whatever amount you can to help us take our stories to the biggest theatre city in the country.
Blamed: An Established Fiction is a new play that combines text with live music and dance to examine the girls and women throughout mythology, history, and literature who have been blamed for the ills of the world. Each culture seems to have one thing in common: A well-known tale in which a girl does something horrible, or is the victim of something horrible, and she ruins everything and everyone around her. From Eve and Pandora to Lilith and La Llorona, Blamed brings the women to life in an intoxicating mix of live music, dance, and story.
