Cherry Picking 2014

ST★R F*CKER

How It works...
Cherry Picking is an annual opportunity for writers, both established and burgeoning, to create new material for performance in one night of staged reading.

Each year, a group of producers gathers and develops the theme for Cherry Picking. This annual meeting allows the creative team to examine issues that are somehow charged. This may be a hot topic politically, a fascinating sociological phenomenon, a nagging question, a captivating image, and so on. A “Call for Submissions” is distributed and writers are invited to tackle the challenge of writing a short play based on the given theme or assignment. Initially, each submission remains anonymous. The submissions are read by a committee whose members choose the line-up for that year’s event. The bravery, wisdom, and candor of our writers is unparalleled. They willingly take on the challenge, fly in the face of fear, and the results are consistently inspiring, regardless of whether or not their work is heard onstage.
