Dear colleagues,

NoPassport invites dramatists, storytellers and poets to send work in the 3-7 minute range and take part in a Theatre Action for weekend of January 26-28, 2013 (to coincide with the March on Washington for Gun Control). The pieces must be sent by January 15, 2013 to and able to be read/performed script in hand, no frills.

In DC: Theater J in Washington, D.C. has offered to collaborate with NoPassport and host an after-show event at 5 PM on January 26, 2013 after their performance of BOGED (Traitor): An Enemy of the People at Georgetown University’s Gonda Theatre where writers, actors and storytellers can read from their work.

On the national level: NoPassport invites practitioners and theatre venues (professional, academic or otherwise) to join us in this theatre action. Please let us know if you wish to take part and collaborate with us in some way.

On the global level: NoPassport recognizes all too well that gun control is not merely a US issue, but affects all of us. If your local company wishes to join us in this action, do let us know.

Basic information about this theatre action for January 2013 is live on

Please feel free to forward this call to your colleagues.

Caridad Svich
