Six Scripts Selected for 12th Annual National Showcase of New Plays
In the midst of a last minute poetry slam, eight young poets with tangled love lives contend for the winning spot while struggling to determine what they are willing to sacrifice. The fiercest contender, Prism, is a woman with an appetite she’s not ashamed of, but the reigning champs have a hard time seeing her as more than a good-time girl. As love triangles become pentagons and octagons, Prism’s unbridled desires threaten to have her silenced for good. Octagon rips open the clichés of the open mic, asking the cost of making a spectacle of ripping open our wounds.
