And get ready for OCTOBER…
YOU can be a PART of a unique, new postal/theatrical event from Peppermint Creek:
Opening Up: a community returns to the world - a theatrical event told in letters & artifacts
Beginning October 2021 (then monthly through June 2022)
In an effort for our community to open up to us and to each other after a period of being isolated and closed off from the world during the global COVID-19 pandemic, Peppermint Creek presents “Opening Up: A Community Returns to the World”.
The community is encouraged to send in one-page letters describing a time in your life when you had to open up in some new or unexpected way and what you learned from the experience. PCTC will highlight one letter each month throughout the season to send to participants in the mail.
Each letter will be accompanied by an artifact that corresponds/helps deepen the experience of the story and may have a participatory element for participants. Other letters from the community will be featured on PCTC’s social media platforms throughout the season in an effort to continue exploring the season theme of “Opening Up” and to continue a dialogue around what that looks like, specifically after a global pandemic.
PCTC hopes this theatrical experience told through letters will be an old (and new!) way to highlight our community voices and for you to experience personal stories from your community in a tactile and visceral way - much as PCTC has always done as a theater company.
Check the website for “tickets” (which is really more like a “subscription”?) http://www.peppermintcreek.org
Accepting letters throughout the entire season. Send your one-page letters via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or mail to:
