With 2020 dwindling in our collective rear view mirrors, Eclectic Full Contact Theatre is leaping forward into the future by....heading back to some old school entertainment--Audio Drama!
And first out of the gate is our monthly anthology series, The Half Hour Audio Hour!
A monthly anthology series featuring a different short audio drama script every episode!
The best in new audio plays, highlighting the work of women, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ writers!
New episodes upload the second Sunday of every month.
And we're kicking things off January 10th with the incredibly timely drama
Written by Cris Eli Blak
Directed by Christopher Sylvie
Eclectic is excited to bring you this show, exploring the fallout of a popular rapper making a public statement in the wake of the police shooting of an unarmed black man. Will Alfie X silence himself to hold on to his mainstream popularity? Breakz asks the questions we all have to ask ourselves when faced with a choice between comfort and justice.
Breakz brings together an amazing cast of actors from around the world. All rehearsals and recordings were done remotely, yet still live, giving The Half Hour Audio Hour, and all our podcasts, the feel and energy of a live performance
