This group is dedicated to No Shame Theatre in Roanoke, a venue for the creation and peformance of original theatre by anyone, about anything.

There are only three rules:

1) All pieces must be under 5 minutes long.

2) All pieces must be original, meaning no possible copyright violations.

3) You can't break anything--not laws, not the venue, not the audience, not your performers, and not yourself. By not breaking the audience, we don't just mean putting the audience in physical danger. Do not, without the permission of the audience member, incorporate them into your piece in such a way as might cause emotional or bodily harm. Likewise, stalking or harrassment of any No Shame participant (including audience) inside or outside the performance venue will result in permanent banning. We exist to provide a safe place to experiment. Anything that undermines that basic tenent is considered breaking the venue.
