Off the Grid: the electricity plays! is the culminating performance of The Manton Avenue Project’s summer Dialogue program, a playwriting class held at MAP’s Clubhouse in Olneyville. The Dialogue program is unique among our seasonal productions in that our young playwrights act alongside professional artists in plays they have written together. Seven returning playwrights, ranging from 6th to 8th grade, are partnered with adult artists, and together each pair writes and co-stars in a 10 minute play based on a storyline developed by the younger playwright. This year’s Dialogue plays focus on the impact electricity has on our lives and how we can use it more sustainably.
