    ScriptWorks Out of Ink: Family Traditions

    Every family has some quirky legacy they cling to and this year they go on the record in ScriptWorks' Out of Ink 2023: Family Traditions. This diverse ten-minute play collection showcases ScriptWorks members' unexpected interpretations of three mandatory script ingredients which provided inspiration during the Weekend Fling 48-hour writing event in the fall: an odd family tradition; a character who becomes something nonhuman over the course of the play; a vinyl record. Directed by Lowell Bartholomee, Rosalind Faires, Ellie McBride, and Kelsey Oliver.
