Bill of (W)Rights

By Janet Allard, Rebecca Gilman, Jeffrey Hatcher, Syl Jones, Gavin Lawrence, Melanie Marnich, Jane Martin, Kelly Stuart, Liz Wong

Directed by Alan Piotrowicz

Bill of (W)Rights is a political funhouse growing from a moment in history when self-censorship abounds and the populace is increasingly governed by fear. Nine playwrights offer ten plays, each based on one of the U.S. Constitution's first ten amendments. These pieces focus less on government interference and more on the interpersonal, from a father and daughter facing a criminal trial to the silence of an unfaithful husband "pleading the fifth" to his family - not to mention a company of actors yelling "Fire!" in a crowded theater.

This production is presented with generous support from the Wisconsin Union Directorate Student Performance Committee and in collaboration with the UW-Madison chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union.

Produced by Undergraduate Theatre Association at Fredric March Play Circle, Memorial Union, 800 Langdon Street
