Sandbox Series Toggle

The mission of the Sandbox Series is to promote new works utilizing top-notch directors, actors, and designers. Sandbox Series productions have limited design elements and shoestring marketing budgets, which reduces the cost and risk of each production. The Sandbox Series has become a platform for plays to go beyond “staged readings” and get up on their feet without a full-fledged “mainstage” production, and thus provides increased exposure to new voices in American Theater.

A White Girl’s Guide to International Terrorism

FEB 6 – MAR 2, 2019

World Premiere by Chelsea Marcantel

Blaze is angry, and with good reason. She’s getting kicked out of her mom’s trailer park in the drug addled Gulf Coast of Louisiana, where part time work at the Dairy Freeze is the most she has to look forward to. That is, until her YouTube channel attracts a mysterious commenter whose words point to a brighter alternative, one that is a dangerous Google search away from unfathomable consequences. A White Girl’s Guide to International Terrorism is the fictionalized epic of a hidden reality in post 9/11 America, where poverty is the battle and misinformation is the weapon. Learn more.
