Dramashop Creative Team envisions taking a cinematic approach to this staged reading. The script is presented in a non-chronological sequence, which presents an opportunity to perhaps mix video for scenes that take place in the past with live readings of the scenes that take place in the present. Creative filming and editing also allow us to work around some challenges created by the need for actors to social distance.
