WHAT IS 'WRIGHT CLUB?

'Wright Club is a group of radically collaborative, boundary-pushing artists ready to write the revolution. The Amoralists ‘Wright Club invites three unique, adventurous, emerging writers to join our creative leadership and ensemble of artists, for a no-holds-barred, no-sides-taken dive into the world of collaborative storytelling.

How it works:

One unifying event.
Three distinct perspectives.
No right answers.

Over the course of one year and in conversation with The Amoralists ensemble of artists, each of our three club authors will craft a play in their unique style that explores one side of that season’s unifying incident and pushes an over-arching narrative forward. Each of these plays will be presented in a limited engagement production. A fourth play, collaboratively written by all three club authors, caps off the year with the final installment of the story, presented in a full production.
