THE RESIDENTS OF CRAIGSLIST
ERA presents an original, found-text performance created entirely from Craigslist posts.
THE RESIDENTS OF CRAIGSLIST is a one-act theatrical work that realizes the classified advertisements website Craigslist as a full yet lonely house containing a myriad of people – its residents.
The premiere production of this work was created with support from the Regional Arts Commission.
