Cheers to World Theatre Day 2014!

A big thank you to everyone who attended last night's celebration of World Theatre Day 2014 at the Lark Play Development Center! We had a terrific audience who all greatly enjoyed the world premiere reading of this year's Around-the-Globe Chain Play, penned by fifteen playwrights from thirteen different countries. If you missed the show, don't worry! You can still watch it online at

Here are some photos from the reading:

Following the play, director Sherri Kronfeld polled the audience for the play's title...

And it shall be forever known as "Belly of the Snow Globe."

Finally, several World Theatre Day veterans delivered this year's international World Theatre Day message, written by South African playwright, director, designer, and Artistic Director of Third World Bunfight, Brett Bailey.

As Brett Bailey (and Doug Howe and Joanna Sheehan Bell) reminded us last night, "Wherever there is human society, the irrepressible Spirit of Performance manifests."

Thank you to The Lark, ART/NY, American Theatre Wing, and all of our volunteers.

We look forward to celebrating WTD 2015 with you next year!
