Watch 10pg. Stage Play: HELEN REDDY WOULD BE ASHAMED by Katie Grotzinger

WILDsound Festival

Watch the Winning 10 page Stage Play by Katie Grotzinger:

CAST LIST:

NARRATOR – Brett J. Kelly
HARDLY – Holly Sarchfield
O’NEIL – Danielle Nicole
PACHEO/PARKER – Maya Woloszyn

Get to know writer Katie Grotzinger:

1. What is your stage play about?

“Helen Reddy Would Be Ashamed” is about a group of teenagers at an all-girls’ school that have to pick a topic to work on for their social justice class. One of them suggests feminism, which the others feel is a pointless topic to bring up in their always pro-woman environment.

2. Why does this play need to be performed at the theatre?

The story takes place in a high school classroom and high school, to me, felt a lot like theatre. Everything was very high energy and the girls in the play are too. I think you can feel that best in a live performance.

10pg. Stage Play: GARBED IN FLESH by Arthur Holden

WILDsound Festival

Watch the Winning 10pg Stage Play (in verse) by Arthur Holden:

CAST LIST:

NARRATOR – Maya Woloszyn
DETECTIVE – Holly Sarchfield
HERA – Danielle Nicole
MAN – Jason J. Thomas

Get to know writer Arthur Holden:

1. What is your stage play about?

My play is a meditation, in iambic verse, on the acceptance in ancient myths of sexual violence as a prerogative of the gods (for which one might read: “the powerful”) and the ways in which that ethos is finally starting to be broken in contemporary culture.

2. Why does this play need to be performed at the theatre?

I’m not sure this (or any) play needs to be performed. But I think its formal classicism and contemporary theme make for an interesting blend that might just please audiences.

3. How long have you been writing stories?

I’ve been writing fiction for some time now. Over the last…

I entered the TV Festival because it was recommended on moviebytes.com. It was highly rated, and I liked that I would receive feedback regardless of the outcome of my script. Good feedback is hard to find, and so I decided to do it. The feedback received was very valid and constructive.

THE GOOD BOY, 15min, Drama/Sports, USA
Directed by Alice L. Lee

the_good_boy_movie_poster

A morality tale, “the good boy” is a film about a young boxer who accepts a challenge to fight a brute of a man only to discover his opponent has the mental capacity of a five year old. This is an unflinching look at what happens when everything you want hinges upon doing something unforgivable, and the consequences of making the wrong decision.

Director’s Statement

I’d been studying the films of Krzysztof Kieslowski (Double Life of Veronique, Dekalog, Blue, White Red) when I was writing “the good boy”. Watching those masterpieces, you can’t help but think about moral dilemmas. Why do people knowingly decide to do something that they know is morally wrong?

I started to watch my own actions and the actions of my…
