Type Face

A closet drama written by May Treuhaft-Ali, graphic design by Ross Dowd

Contagion Closet Dramas was an initiative by Two Headed Rep to create :

"an exponentially growing collection of micro-plays meant for reading, not seeing”.

Whilst in Covid-19 induced lockdown, playwrights were invited to write a 5-slide play in 24 hours that is meant to be read and not performed. The play is then posted on Instagram, with the playwright nominating two more candidates to contribute. May Treuhaft-Ali’s play, Type Face, made use of fonts to tell its story.

The challenge here was in using typography and graphic design to add a dynamic element to the story, whilst at the same time letting the words, quite literally, speak for themselves.
