Based On Your True Story

Synopsis:
Imagine a night of theatre written by four different communities: family members; the twitter/facebook world; the ny theatre/improv scene; complete strangers. Brett epstein is a New York based playwright who has targeted each of these communities as inspiration for his latest work. He interviewed an array of people in all of these communities throughout the month of January - one person a day for a total of thirty interviews. By being an active listener - whether he has known the interviewee for 24 years or for 24 seconds - he has learned their passions and struggles, their regrets and dreams. their stories, their words, their experiences, their lives have inspired SIX NeW SHORT PLaYS to be presented with a DOCUMeNTaRY film about epstein's process talking with the people in these communities. What they shared has completely shaped this new work. This project is the possibility of openness, vulnerability, creativity, leadership and artistic healing.
