Last season, we thrilled you, chilled you, made you cry, and left you breathless. Now The Tin Ceiling Theater Company, ever the innovators of the St. Louis theatre community, kicks off a brand new season with a national endeavor!

The Tin Ceiling Theater Company and The 365 National Festival will present Week 25 of Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks' "365 Days/365 Plays" on May 4-6, 2007. This show will be directed by Robert Strasser and Maria Straub.

365 Days/365 Plays started in November 2002 when Suzan-Lori Parks committed to writing a play a day for the next 365 days. From Nov 13, 2006 - Nov 12, 2007, the 365 Days/365 Plays National Festival will perform these brief, brilliant plays simultaneously across the country, creating the largest collaboration in the history of American theater.

The Tin Ceiling Theater Company will be performing these plays free of charge (though donations will be more than gladly accepted) to the public the weekend of May 4th – May 6th. Come down to our beautiful Southside storefront theater for a night of performances intermingled with live music from some of your favorite St. Louis performers:

Friday: The Monads, The Red Headed Strangers, Casey Reid, and the Zombozo House Band

Saturday: The Vultures, Stella Mora, Troubadour Dali

Sunday: Forbidden Fruit Snacks, Bravo Company, The Red Headed Strangers

While we fill your head with theatre and music, we’ll fill your belly with BBQ and beverages as well! Join us for three whimsical evenings of plays, tunes, and food as we kick off the Tin Ceiling’s 2007 Season!
