This event has passed.

Seven playwrights and seven poets write to prompts provided by seven different visual artists. These writings are then produced and staged by directors and actors drawn from Seattle's theater community. At the end of the run, the audience votes on who did it better— the playwrights or the poets! The winning team of writers each gets a bottle of Two Buck Chuck. The losing team a can of warm Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer.
