7 Rooms: The Masque of the Red Death Reprise

Indefinitely Postponed

Our 7 Rooms playwrights, directors, actors, and other collaborators brought an important issue to our attention. In our haste to make 7 Rooms: the Masque of the Red Death available to audiences again, we had made some mistakes. We were so excited to broadcast this reprise for Halloween that we did not take the time to make sure that all our collaborators were involved and empowered around the re-use of their work.

There is very little norm or precedent for virtual theatre; we are all creating new rules as we learn to navigate this new medium, and Flat Earth Theatre is trying to do so in an equitable way. Over the past week, we have been in conversation with our collaborators and seeking a path forward, but have come to the difficult realization that it is not possible to re-broadcast this show this October in a way that is fair and comfortable for our full team.

We will therefore be indefinitely postponing the 7 Rooms reprise.

As the theatre-making landscape changes, both virtually and live on stages, we want to help establish new norms for the theatre community and for ourselves. We are endlessly grateful to be part of a circle of collaborators that so emphasizes equity, inclusion, and respect for artists. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from our collaborators as we continue to clarify our values as a company, and we welcome and invite these conversations as we continue to grow as theatremakers.
