ABOUT 365 DAYS/365 PLAYS: 
A 2017 REmix

365 Days/Plays marked the company’s first major production and exemplified our mission of investigating diversity through contemporary viewpoints.  The production was co-directed by Full Circle core artists Rick Shiomi, Martha B. Johnson, Stephanie Lein Walseth, and Lara Trujillo and guest co-director Harry Waters Jr.  Core artist James A. Williams served as artistic and cultural consultant. 

The production intertwined 46 short plays selected from Parks' 365 Days/365 Plays, viewed through a 2017 lens, to create a compelling theater experience and deeply involve diverse audiences in Parks' unique humor and vision of healing in America.  

The plays ranged in genre from hilarious parody and theater-of-the-absurd to pieces of powerful lyricism and epic tragedy, and spoke forcefully to past and present issues:  major events in American history, racism, anti-war themes, and other pressing social concerns.  A racially mixed cast of 10 professional actors tackled these themes, playing multiple roles.
