InterAct's OUTSIDE THE FRAME Festival is "Perhaps the Biggest Event this Spring..."

In this week's Philadelphia Weekly, J. Cooper Robb includes InterAct's newly announced line-up for the upcoming OUTSIDE THE FRAME Festival as one of his "2012 Productions You Don't Want to Miss," hailing it as "Perhaps the biggest event this spring...":

Whether you’re a seasoned theatergoer or a newbie to the scene, it’s easy to see that our local theater companies are doing exciting work. Drugs, racism, identity issues, gay rights. These are just a few of the issues being tackled - both seriously and not - on stages across the city in the new year...

Perhaps the biggest event this spring is InterAct Theatre’s ambitious new festival “Outside the Frame: Voices from The Other America” at the Adrienne (March 27-April 22). InterAct’s artistic director Seth Rozin says the festival’s goal is to give voice to communities rarely covered by the mainstream media. The festival features eight small touring productions including a solo piece by queer performance artist Tim Miller called Lay of the Land, and Najla Said’s Palestine , a humorous story of a Palestinian-American princess who rediscovers her Arab-American identity when she travels to occupied territories.
