Godzilla Vs. My Ex-Girlfriends: A Playwriting Collective Party The Playwriting Collective
About This Show
Godzilla’s alcohol fueled messy break-ups with other Kaiju are the stuff of legend. Now the hulking and foreboding Godzilla, a bi-poly serial dater fighting body dysmorphic disorder, looms over the helpless NYC.
While fleeing Godzilla’s rampage a man ducks under some rubble… only to notice every other person near Godzilla is someone he dated. It seems the league of his extraordinary exes have joined forces to take on the monstrous Godzilla. Amidst this fantasia of carnage, the dangers of dating are revealed as the true monster that not even Godzilla can defeat.
about the artists
The Playwriting Collective (http://www.ThePlaywritingCollective.com) is a playwright driven initiative to support voices from lower economic backgrounds. We put the playwright first and seek out writers as well as stories, narratives, and characters that shine a light on the current state of America’s lower class. The work we cultivate is transmedia and we encourage our artists to indulge their imaginations. From vast multimedia spectacle, to puppetry, to audience participation… we want to uplift people artistically and socially through stories armed with all the weapons of modern stagecraft.
