• Did someone order spunk

    with a sensitive side?

    Monica Furman was raised in Brooklyn by her Jew-ish

    Russian-speaking family from Ukraine, so she's working out

    her dual-identity crisis by being an artist instead of a doctor

    like her babushka wanted.

     

    **Monica has immediate housing in both Chicago and LA!**

  • Devising (v.)

    a method of theatre-making that originates from collaborative, often improvisatory work by a performing ensemble

    TBD: The Live Devising Project

    By the Cucumber Dogs, in association with Sitting Shotgun

    "It is inspiring to see the international ensemble of Cucumber Dogs collaborating seamlessly. There is much to learn from them about efficient communication, respect, and putting the mutual goal above individual ambitions. For that alone, TBD: The Live Devising Project is worth attending for anybody who interacts with other people (which means everybody)."
