About The Wordshop: Akiko and The Unknown by Devon Hayakawa
With nods to the whimsy and wonder that Studio Ghibli films encapsulate, and classic stories of fantastical worlds such as Peter Pan or Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Akiko and the Unknown is the adventurous tale of three siblings who fall up into the sky one stormy night, and find themselves instantly wrapped up in a foreboding prophecy concerning the vast darkness consuming a kingdom in the clouds. During the month of November, four new works will be given a development process with The Plagiarists that will culminate in a weeklong workshop and public staged readings at Jarvis Square Theatre. The goal is to offer playwrights some of the most precious things in storefront theatre: space, time, collaborators, and an audience. Each week, new projects will take the stage, offering audiences a season’s worth of new shows in the space of a few weeks and playwrights a chance to have their work seen and heard. After a few years of online interaction, we believe that time spent in the room together - with both collaborators and audiences - is invaluable. All Performances are BYOB, so feel free to bring a beverage to enjoy during the reading!
