By Blackout Theatre

Blackout Theatre proudly presents the premiere of our newest original full-length play. Driftwood is a tale from the distant past. Continuing in our exploration of the Forrester Family tree, we delve into the lives of two sisters, Esme and Astrid, on a journey to find out about their mother and the homeland they knew only as children. Their mother is dying, and they must journey back to be with her in her final hours. The journey will be treacherous. Few make it alive. It will change them forever. 



6th Annual Wrinkle Writing Showcase

Blackout's In-School Theatre Education Program

Wrinkle Writing is a playwriting program that takes place in classrooms during the school day. Over the course of the year, students write and rehearse their own original play as a class for production in an end-of-the-year showcase. The goal of Wrinkle Writing is to increase student literacy and love of writing, while creating a more cooperative and fun classroom. The 5th Annual Wrinkle Writing Showcase is a great opportunity to see what the youngest theatre makers in Albuquerque are working on.
