Another Jungle received an Honorable Mention for the 2017 Relentless Award. From the American Playwriting Foundation:
Each year The American Playwriting Foundation receives roughly 1,000-2,000 submissions, in the three years since its inception. Narrowing down to just 8 top plays is an incredibly difficult, and sometimes heart breaking process. Since last year, we have featured a select additional group of scripts, that were given special recognition by our Subcommittee.
Another Jungle is one of just eleven Honorable Mentions. For more about the American Playwriting Foundation and the Relentless Award (which was established in honor of Philip Seymour Hoffman), you can visit their site.
On Saturday, January 20, Strange Heart Beating will launch a new reading series at the Center for Performing Arts in Minneapolis. The ReClaim series uses plays to initiate conversations about social justice. The reading will be followed by small group conversations with facilitators from the Dispute Resolution Center of MN.
From CPFA’s website: “The ReClaim series supports artists who engage fiercely with the complex and contradictory nature of the human experience. We support audiences who yearn for greater personal engagement between works of art and the daily life of our community. With a focus on artists that reckon with social justice on a human scale, the post-presentation discussions are facilitated by skilled leaders in the creation of art and the seeking of justice.”
The reading begins at 7:30pm; admission is free. For more, visit CPFA’s site here.
