“Then you get out of the military and you try to integrate back—you do integrate back into the civilian world, but you quickly realize that nobody else is thinking that way, nobody else is thinking that everything they do is for a team.” —Smith&True, 2014

Less than one half of one percent of U.S. citizens currently serve in the armed forces, creating a an experience gap between Veterans and civilians. Goat in the Road has spent the last two plus years connecting with military Veterans, families, and medical experts to build this fast-moving, darkly funny play about the daily life of the returning Vet. 

Performers and Creators William Bowling, Shannon Flaherty, Denise Frazier, Darci Fulcher, Jeremy Guyton, Dylan Hunter, Leslie Boles Kraus
Composer Peter Bowling
Director Chris Kaminstein
Design Team Nicolas Benacerraf, Joshua Courtney, Owen Ever, Kyle Sheehan,Kit Sternberger, Kaci Thomassie

10 student plays. 5 theatre companies. hilarity and drama ensue.

Goat in the Road Productions and Dillard University Theatre present their annual event, the Play/Write Showcase at Dillard’s Samuel DuBois Cook Theatre located at 2601 Gentilly Blvd.

GET YOUR TICKETS HERE!

This year’s Play/Write producers are:

Dancing Grounds  --  The Dillard Players  --  KM Dance Project  --  Last Call  --  Southern Rep

These companies’ adult performers will take the students’ words from the page to the stage, celebrating the work that all of the 300 students involved in the Play/Write program have done over the past year.

Participating schools are:

St. Mary’s Academy--  Success Preparatory Academy--  The International School of Louisiana-- Young Audiences Charter School--  Warren Easton Charter High School

This is GRP’s eighth year conducting Play/Write. The program consists of yearlong playwriting residencies conducted in five New Orleans schools. During these residencies, each student writes an original play, 10 of which are chosen for the Showcase. This event creates a direct relationship between writing dramatic scripts in the classroom and the real world application of that writing: a theatre production. In addition to the evening performance that is open to the public, the students will come to Dillard University’s Cook Theatre on the same day for a 10 a.m. matinee performance. Every student will receive a formatted and professionally printed copy of his/her play.

Get Your Art On

Get Your Art On!
The Contemporary Arts Center (900 Camp St.)
FREE admission

Get Your Art On is a collection of dynamic art-making workshops and creative experiences, including entrance to the New Orleans Contemporary Arts Center (CAC). Free and open to the public, with complimentary food, drink, and activities for children, Get Your Art On will be an open and welcoming art-making space for all: military service members and Veterans, their families, artists, civilians, and everyone in between. 

This event is being presented in conjunction with GRP's new play Foreign to Myself, which will premiere at the CAC in May 2017.

Workshops will include: 

  • Louisiana Prayer Flags - Porch Stories, an installation by artists Babette Beaullieu and Jan Gilbert, is an invitation to celebrate who we are today in Louisiana - this lively layering of many racial/cultural backgrounds and to share this reflection in dialogue with a wider audience. Come sit on our porch and tell us a story!
     
  • Playwriting workshop with staged readings – Working with UNO MFA Bryon Reiger, participants will explore the opportunity that playwriting provides to express big ideas, big emotions, or simple, quiet moments. Participants will then see their work go from page to stage as their scenes are brought to life by local New Orleans actors.
     
  • Combat Paper - Through public workshops and home bunker studios, Combat Paper transforms military uniforms into handmade paper. For ten years a growing team of veterans have been learning and teaching the ancient handmade paper technique. This handmade paper creates a platform for veterans and non-veterans to come together and make art that communicates experiences and thoughts relating the the military and war.
     
  • Expressive visual art making - Hosted by Whole Village Art Therapy, a nonprofit organization that focuses on providing high quality, community based art therapy and mental health services to all. Whole Village's art therapists will facilitate an artmaking experience to support creative expression for adults, children, and families. No art experience is necessary. 

We are excited to be hosting this event with the CAC , as well as the NOLA Veterans Arts and Humanities Alliance. This group, created in the fall of 2016, brings together veterans, health care providers, artists, and other community members who believe in the power of the arts and humanities to promote healing and mutual understanding, with the goal of creating more opportunities for art-making and dialogue involving veterans and the larger community in New Orleans.
