Andy Bennett makes a great show of talking up Renegade's New Works Festival next week as an opportunity to focus on and support writers. Bennett paints a picture of a process that gets playwrights out of their solitary garrets and brings them together in a supportive, creative community. But has he told them that the Festival begins with a Write Fight on Wednesday where eight writers compete in a "single elimination tournament live on stage"??
Scheduled fighters include: Mayor Don Ness, Lucie Amundsen, Abraham Curran, Mary Fox, Claire Kirch, Christa Lawler, MacKenzie McCullum and Megan Rekowski.
