The Ashley Plays @ Home
Oct 25 @ 1:00 pm – 1:45 pm

The Ashley Plays @ Home

The Ashley Plays @ Home is a cycle of site-specific monodramas, written by Theatre@York’s 4290 playwrights, exploring the life of a character named Ashley. Each playwright has developed a different Ashley, reflecting their individual artistic voice. With the assistance of the 4290 dramaturgs as well as input from course director and project initiator Professor Judith Rudakoff, each playwright wrote a piece set in their bedroom in Spring 2020, during the height of the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic and quarantine. While the pieces do not tell the story of the pandemic, each play is in some way shaped by the given circumstances of this new reality.

The Ashley Plays @ Home will premiere on the York University – School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design YouTube channel at 1pm EST on Sunday, October 25th and will be available afterwards to watch indefinitely.

Garrett M. Ryan
