The Video of the Day for The 12 Days of TBTB!

On the twelfth day of TBTB, Chris Phillips wrote a realistic and heart-warming piece for VPI 2, CLOUD BUSTING. This play is about how people were coping with the isolation of the pandemic. It was directed by Stuart Green and stars Jennifer Bradley, Richard Lear, and Dan Teachout. Please consider donating to TBTB above, and check out this wonderful show:

The Japan-United States Friendship Commission


Mid-Atlantic Arts (USArtists International)

for their OUTSTANDING support of our work and mission,

which enabled us to travel to the 15th BIRD International Theatre Festival in September!

Hey, TBTB Fans!

We are SUPER EXCITED to announce that we will be traveling to Tottori, Japan from September 5 – 27 to attend the 15th BIRD INTERNATIONAL THEATRE FESTIVAL! We originally planned to attend the festival in 2020, but COVID locked us down and kept us stateside. We will be bringing our latest Off-Broadway production of BRECHT ON BRECHT and we will also be presenting an original collaborative piece, featuring artists from both TBTB and Japan’s FREEDOM Theatre. 

We can’t wait to share all of our adventures in Japan with you as they happen, so please stay tuned for information about our daily vlogs and live-streamed events from Japan!

In the meantime, we would like to share some of the work we created last year during lockdown with our colleagues from the FREEDOM Theatre. Because we could not work together in person we created two original virtual collaborations, written by TBTB’s Jeff Tabnick and Fareeda Ahmed. Both plays were filmed and captioned and we are so pleased to share them with you here as a prelude to our live work this September. Please enjoy!
