What Would You Do If You Won The Lottery? part of Newark Open Doors Studio Tour

What Would You Do If You Won the Lottery?

The Powerball Jackpot is $300,000,00.00! You bought your ticket from the corner deli. You imagine what winning would be like when you’re sitting in traffic on McCarter Highway! 

Join us for a public reading at {LIPS} of a new performance piece that fantasizes hopelessly about a dollar and a dream. Angela Kariotis and Lillian Ribeiro lead public writing and performance workshops with participants using devised theater techniques. The writing generated was then edited into a script created and directed by Kariotis with the workshop participants cast as performers. Ideas about economic human rights, capitalism, debt, freedom, and wealth are among what is explored. Cash rules everything around me...
