ABOUT THE RIPPED: THE LIVING NEWSPAPER SERIES
Since 2009, we’ve produced 115 short plays. Based on the 1930’s WPA era program that brought Orson Welles, Arthur Miller, Richard Wright, and Clifford Odets into public attention, playwrights use inspiration ripped from today’s headlines to create stories performed live on stage.
