The Last Paving Stone

Institute History

  • 1996 Playwrights Lab


This comic fantasy for children encompasses the themes of civic and environmental responsibility, while blending two disciplines together – orchestra and theatre – allowing the orchestra to act as the character of The Ground. The play is about communication, about listening, and about making an effort to understand that which, at first, sounds foreign to our ears.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
