ABOUT THE WTF SEASON ON AUDIBLE
In an innovative collaboration devised to meet the challenges posed by the global health pandemic, the 2020 season will be the first-ever complete theatre season released by Audible, the world’s largest producer and provider of original spoken-word entertainment and audiobooks. The 2020 WTF Season on Audible will be produced in an audio-only format safe to elevate, entertain, and transform audiences from the comfort of their homes.
Our collaboration with Audible for the 2020 season presents new artistic opportunities that we are embracing head-on as we produce this work. While this season will be different, it is being made with the spirit of invention that has long been a hallmark of the Festival. We hope you will listen to the work so we can transport you into the world of Blanche DuBois in 1940s New Orleans, into a hotel in Thailand where Kina prepares for gender confirmation surgery, onto Tori McClure’s rowboat as she rows solo across the Atlantic Ocean, and so much more.
