Detention is a monthly series of new and original theater pieces written, directed, and performed by ESPA students. Each month, writers are invited to submit short plays based on an imaginative assignment created by a prominent guest artist. A handful of plays are selected, staffed with a student director, and cast with student actors for a one-night-only production at Jimmy’s No. 43 in the East Village. Detention plays have gone on to both publication and production. This program continually brings the ESPA community of artists together in a collaborative challenge with invaluable public exposure.
March series advisor is Josh Hecht (director Amandine at Cherry Lane Theatre).
