Five men attend a week-long workshop on toxic masculinity. The introduction of a "real, live woman" on day 2 brings out the worst in all of them. And yes, the doorway is a curtain shaped like a vulva. Playwright Maya Macdonald's new play Raw Pasta was a whirlwind of an experience. It was presented as a workshop production as part of the New Ohio Theatre's 2019 Ice Factory festival. With an ensemble of actors hailing from NYC, LA, and Hawaii, each day developing this show was a new adventure.
Fun Fact: Since Raw Pasta was a work in progress up until tech, the main challenge was keeping up with script changes, ranging from altered lines to entire scenes being added. Check out how we tracked changes below!
