dead presidents write new plays

The Anthology project for the Humana Fest is shaping up nicely. Lots of funny, high-energy stuff, and the apprentice company is talented and huggable. One of the things the writers had to do today is sign Humana Festival posters that will be given as gifts to people who donate $$$ to Actors Theatre. 200 posters signed in silver Sharpie in an unventilated room. Sharpie marker + no ventilation = awesome. One lucky theatre doner will receive a Humana Festival poster signed by dead U.S. presidents. Hilarious, right? We thought so! As literary intern Charles stated, we "stopped complaining about the fumes and started submitting to them."
