The Weekly Howl is a peer-produced, open-access discussion about theatre culture and contemporary performance that happens on Twitter using the hashtag #newplay.*

Join us Thursday, January 24th for the Weekly Howl on hashtag #newplay at 11am PST - 12pm PST (San Francisco) / 1pm CST - 2pm CST (Chicago) / 2pm EST - 3pm EST (New York) / 19:00 GMT - 20:00 GMT (London).

Using Tammy Ryan's recent HowlRound article "The Guns in My Plays" as a starting point for this week's discussion, we'll discuss the relationship between real-world violence and theatre's representation of it.

If you already have specific prompts or questions you want addressed for this chat, please write them in the comments section below.

On Thursday, get heard in the conversation by searching for #newplay in Twitter (sort by “all”) and by putting “#newplay” somewhere in your messages. Spread the word!

*The hashtag #newplay in Twitter is a commons tag (i.e. non-proprietary, community-invested tag) for aggregating global knowledge, information, and conversation related to new works, new performance, and new strategies in the theatre.
