Write Out Front / by Shaun Fauntleroy

In August, 2014, I participated in Write Out FrontWrite Out Front, begun by Micheline Auger, is: 

An installation of up-and-coming and professional playwrights writing new plays in the storefront window of the Drama Book Shop. In each two-hour time slot, a different playwright will write their play while the screen shot from their computer is projected onto a 42" monitor facing passersby on the street. 

I had the honor of writing alongside Stephen Adly Guirgis, Nat Cassidy, David Cote, Padraic Lillis, Crystal Skillman, Gina Femia, and many other incredibly talented playwrights. This was a thrilling experience and I'm happy to say I got a lot of work done. It looks like all I needed to ignite productivity was a storefront window!

The public is able to support and follow the playwright via the Theaterspeak Blog, FB page, Twitter (@writeoutfront), Instagram and follow the development of the play and the writer after the installation ends.
