The Drafts Fest:Accidental Discharge Impossible

Sex, guns, cigarettes and senile agitation, this short play festival is inspired by classic print ads that are actually a bit shocking. The Drafts Fest is the collaborative effort of six playwrights, six directors, and eight multifaceted actors. Playwrights receive randomly compiled cast lists and create stories tailored to The Drafts based on this year’s theme, Accidental Discharge Impossible.
