Do you want to see the freshest, newest work to come out of The Theatre School? Come to the Play Slam where our playwriting majors and comedy artists will be presenting work written in the last 24 hours! Audience members will have the option of participating by reading scenes written just a few hours before by our playwrights and laughing along with our comedians as they workshop never-before-seen jokes.

Mischief makers and all who aspire to cause joyful chaos lend their cunning comedy hijinks to the aid of The Wondrous Order of the Stylus! In order to defeat Pierre Corneille and his villainous Aristotelian Alliance by any means necessary, and RiOtS of SpRiNg - A collaborative TikTok challenge where Agents of ChAos (and all who want the last laugh!) embark on a specific mission to take down one of Pierre's hench people and their dangerously (sa)TIRED ideas! All will be broadcast on our encrypted network (AKA TikTok) to hopefully build the alliance and save the Wrights of Spring!
