 Gi60 International US Live Edition: Play Selection:

We're delighted to announce the 50 plays selected for 18th annual Gi60 International US Live:  performances at The Tank NYC, July 6, 7, 8 and 9 at 7:30 pm, 312 West 36th Street, NYC - live and live streamed, ticket links will be posted soon!
I can only echo what Steve Ansell wrote in an earlier post: we are humbled and overwhelmed with gratitude by the many, many hundreds of remarkable plays that writers submit each year. Funny, heartbreaking, whimsical, cautionary, mysterious, hopeful, and ultimately all powerful; these plays capture 50 tiny slices of life at this moment on Planet Earth. We know that these plays - and the ensembles that will bring them to life onstage - will do what theatre does best: help us all feel less alone in these challenging times.
