The Ashley Plays
Oct 13, 2012, 12:45pm
The Ashley Plays is a cycle of short, devised site-specific performances by York theatre students.
Each cycle begins with the participants collaboratively delineating a profile of a non gender-specific character named Ashley. Ashley must be the focus of the work, but need not be a character who actually appears. Each “play” is created at an assigned or chosen site: for this cycle, every site is within York University’s Centre for Film and Theatre.
In performance, the monodramas are viewed by moving pods of spectators. There is no linear narrative, but simply a common character that each playwright interacts with in his or her own unique and inspired way.
The Ashley Plays is conceived and dramaturged by Theatre Professor Judith Rudakoff.
