Medicine Ball: Playwrights v. Poets 2015 - The Valentine's Edition!
Medicine Ball: Playwrights v. Poets returns for a special Valentine’s Weekend edition at West of Lenin theatre in Fremont as the World’s Greatest Literary Boxing Match of the Year takes on literally the most fearsome tropic to face mankind – Love and Sex.
Like a boxing match, playwrights and poets are paired off, given a prompt to write toward, and then the acting company performs the plays and poems produced in a series of seven rounds with the audience voting on who wins each round – playwright or poet.
At the end of the weekend, the winning team of writers each wins a bottle of Two-Buck-Chuck while each member of the losing team wins a can of warm Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer. So there are no losers in Medicine Ball: Playwrights v. Poets! Everybody is a winner!
