This week Seattle embarks on the Susan Lori Parks 365 plays festival,  along with hundreds of  theaters/organizations around the country. Parks (a playwright) wrote a play every day for a year, and now cities around the country can enjoy Parks  play a day for a year. Granted most are really short...  but hey... they're free. OtB will participate with  a week-long slot  in May. Stay tuned for more about that. For now you can go to for more info about the scope of the Seattle project and the calendar of events. Here's a snapshot from the website: From Nov. 13, 2006 through Nov. 12, 2007, Seattle performing artists, producers and presenters from a variety of disciplines will collaborate to present the World Premiere of Suzan-Lori Parks’ 365 Days/365 Plays at venues throughout Seattle and King County. Through a 365 National Festival, the project will be produced simultaneously in Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and other communities throughout the United States, in what marks the largest theater collaboration in history. Also today's Seattle PI and NY Times  ran articles about the project. Posted by Sara
