MYTH-APPROPRIATION: Tales From the Edge of the World

Tales From the Edge of the World

August 9, 2010

Myth-Appropriation: TALES FROM THE EDGE OF THE WORLD was the fifth edition of Rorschach’s extreme new play development project, Myth-Appropriation, in which a group of writers, directors, designers and actors join forces to bring six fully realized new plays to life for one night only. The process begins with playwrights adapting myths from sources such as as Grimms Fairytales or Urban Legends.

This time around, the stories were drawn from the sources of SEASON 9: The Arabian Nights, Ulysses, stories of possession and tales of the undead.
