3 days of prep
3 nights of performance
Now in its third year, Amuse Bouche 2013 will feature five hand-picked playwrights from across the country. All are tasked to cook up a 15 minute script in 24 hours, with work based on ten “ingredients” curated by the students at Steppenwolf’s Young Adult Council (YAC).
Kicking off an ongoing programming relationship between PG and the YAC, students will follow the production process from early planning stages through the final performance. A few YAC members will even be joining the cast for a unique experience working with professional actors and directors in a fast-paced environment.
