Writing is Live 2015 runs February 6th through 8th at the Leeds Theatre on campus at Brown.

This winter, Brown Theatre presents the world premiere of Heist Play. This new play is written and directed by Brown University undergraduate, Skylar Fox ‘15, and devised with a company of ten actors. The play brings the fast-paced action and excitement of classic caper films to the stage using projection, special effects, and innovative staging - and then explores what happens to members of the heist team after the credits roll and the criminals go their separate ways.
