Building Bridges

This Cut to The Chase Theme will explore theatre as the art of empathy. In a time of great division, anger, and fear, can we still find our way to seeing the basic humanity that joins us all? Your piece can explore any element of the theme, and how we can, or cannot, overcome the breakdown of communication.
