Another Consecutive Year of Living

  • The Tank 312 W 36th Street New York, NY, 10018 United States (map)


Another Consecutive Year of Living is a serial birthday play about Evan Garrett’s 29th year on this planet. Starting on May 12th, 2019, Evan will write and perform a 30-minute play every week to illuminate the events that occurred that week. In 2020, for his 30th birthday, he will perform all 48 plays in one 24-hour event. The goal: create a process piece communicating how one person can change over the course of 52 weeks.

For Evan, this epic process is a question about if he can consistently make art he believes in when confronted with the repetition of life.  Currently working as an accountant, he is looking to reach back to the love of creating theater he once had.  Will this play light a path for Evan to continue on? Or will it act as a love letter saying good-bye to a dream-- exhausting the creative air from within him and reifying himself to the endless excel sheets on his screen?  Each week will guide him along the way; maybe at 30 he will learn which way he wants to go...
