The Manton Avenue Project’s next play fest is inspired by stories shared around the campfire and is the culminating production of our summer Dialogue class. Ten young playwrights (6th-10th graders) created original plays and performance pieces devised together with their dramaturgy mentors at a four-day writing retreat at Nature’s Classroom in Charlton, MA, where we met around the campfire each evening, took a late night hike and learned how to call to owls and coyotes. We were also inspired by visits to our classroom by storytellers and our own story circles about our lives and memories.

The resulting plays are spooky, fun, imaginative, and hilarious, and will be presented as part of FringePVD and Family Fringe, July 26-29, 2017.

Our summer Dialogue class is supported in part by generous grants from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities, and the United Way of Rhode Island.
