Anne Washburn is the recipient of the 2015 Whiting Award for Drama
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to tech. Around you, a company of 14 is engaged in the very peculiar—and peculiarly impossible—task of making a new play. You’ll have a seat next to the sound designer as he mixes cues. You’ll eavesdrop on backstage gossip as it happens over headset. You’ll watch the director struggle to contain the uncontainable.
Anne Washburn (Mr. Burns
) took notes during her tech rehearsals over the years. 10 Out of 12
is a wry and absorbing look at how work forms us and deforms us.
