The Ashley Plays @ Home
The Ashley Plays @ Home is a cycle of site-specific monodramas, written by Theatre@York’s 4th year playwrights, exploring the life of a character named Ashley. Each playwright has developed a different Ashley, reflecting their individual artistic voice. With the assistance of student dramaturgs as well as input from course director Prof. Judith Rudakoff, each playwright wrote a piece set in Spring 2020, during the height of the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic and quarantine. While the pieces do not tell the story of the pandemic, each play is shaped by the given circumstances of this new reality.

Garrett M. Ryan, Erin Dagenais, Alexandra Belle Gaudet, Cadence Bishop, Connor Williamson, Shaughn Clutchey, Samantha Uhl, Sydney Sziraky, Melanie Thompson
