Theatre group highlights local issues in its productions (DailyIowan)
Jennifer Fawcett believes Working Group Theatre is a company with a conscience. The cofounder wants to produce works that are thought-provoking and create an effect in the Cultural Corridor.
“We want to use theater as a springboard for conversation in the community and, with that, getting people to come into the theater to talk about it,” Fawcett said.
Working Group isn’t the type of company to put on a typical Shakespeare piece. Don’t be surprised if the troupe puts a twist on a traditional play by reinterpreting the story and bringing it to a nontraditional audience, such as a prison or a shelter. The group’s focus, however, is to highlight original and relevant productions and tell stories that are brought from the fringes to the spotlight.
