Sometimes playwrights need a little guidance to set them into creation mode. A set of rules if you will. In Rule of 7x7, 7 playwrights are commissioned to write a brand new ten-minute play but before they can, they each must pick a rule the others must include. These 7 rules serve as a jumpstart for a night of fun, laughs, and a good time.
In the (Almost) Summer Edition of Rule of 7x7, producer Brett Epstein puts on the writer hat alongside Matt Barbot, Matt Cox, Dan McCabe, Donaldo Prescod, Jordan Swisher, and Stephanie Swirsky who offer a night of excitment. The rules the seven must follow range from the vague, including Diane (Stephanie), Jamboree (Jordan), and The Hamptons (Matt C) to the specific including the last line being identical to the first (Matt B), the same word being repeated 7 times in a single line of dialogue (Dan), pills being taken (Donaldo), and the inclusion of "Her breasts felt like" or "His penis looked like" (Brett). With the wackiness of the rules came 7 drastically different plays. But the fun is when the audience picked up on them. While some were clearer than others, when they were present, the reactions were pleasant. The highlights of the night included a nautical high seas adventure from the zany mind of Matt Cox and Donaldo Prescod's play about an awkward car ride with a potential serial killer.
Rule of 7x7 is a celebration of talent and fun brought to life by a group of friends. With a free beer with every ticket, you’re bound to enjoy your time.
