365 PLAYS/365 DAYS is a collection of short plays by the Pulitzer Prize winning playwright of TOPDOG/UNDERDOG and THE AMERICA PLAY. On Monday, May 21 RORSCHACH THEATRE will join hundreds of other theatres around the country who have come together to present this incredible body of work.

Parks wrote one play each day for a year. Inspired by her example RORSCHACH THEATRE will present its seven plays in the same sort of whirlwind spirit. Actors and directors will meet on Saturday to receive scripts and a list of challenges to work into their productions. On Monday night the theatre doors open and RORSCHACH THEATRE will present seven fully staged productions to an audience hungry for spectacle and excitement!
