Pssst… Hey. Boston.
The Federation of Belligerent Writers had such an IMMENSELY good time during Sindepedence Day that we’ve decided to darken your doorstep once again!! And this time, we’re bringing you EVEN MORE chicanery than before. And how are we doing that, you ask?
Becky’s Birthday. A Slumber Party. And a knock-down, drag-out TAG TEAM SHOW!! Wear your PJs because we will be, too!!
But before we get into that whole rigamorale, we must first re-establish…
THE FBW PREMISE:
A bracketed style tournament designed to push burgeoning writers and performers to their limits. During each round, two competitors approach the stage. 3 words are chosen at the random. The writers then have 3-5 minutes to write virtually anything, as long as the 3 designated words are utilized. During the round, the audience is encouraged to be as loud and raucous as possible to increase the challenge for the competitors, and enhance the fun for themselves. Dancing! Yelling! Throwing of things! At the end of 5 minutes, each writer in turn will read their work aloud to the audience. And here is where you come in, audience; utilizing a two sided sign provided to you by US at the outset of the tournament, you will vote for who will advance in the tournament. The winner advances, and the loser departs. The winner of the tournament is then crowned the FBW Champion…by you. You dictate the journey. You choose a winner. You decide how the story ends.
ONLY THIS TIME IT’S DIFFERENT!!
8 teams will compete in 2 on 2 competition. The teams themselve write in tandem for the 5 minutes provided to them. At the end of the 5 minutes, they read/perform their piece as a team, and are judged on the merits of their team based performance. When the Final Team emerges victorious over their feeble opponents, the two competitors will face SECRET TO,BE REVEALED in the Final Round to determine who will walk away the Black Hand of Mayhem, and that 3rd spot in the November to Dismember Championship Bracket.
Black Hand of Mayhem!?
Wearing PJs to the theatre?!?!
EVEN MORE FBW CHARACTERS!?!?
What sort of show is this going to be!?!
Stay tuned to this event page as the secrets are gradually revealed, my Belligerent Ones. There’s no hyperbole when I tell you that this show is going to be unlike anything you’ve ever seen. It’s that weird. It’s that compelling. It’s that much effing fun.
And all of the decadence the Federation of Belligerent Writers will bring to bear!!
One of the last 3 shows of the year!!
Becky’s #HashTagTeam Slumber Party!!
