The 14th annual weekend festival unites arts institutions from across the country to develop new works for the stage. Among the participating theatre companies are the Actors Theatre of Louisville, the Denver Center Theatre Company, and New York’s Second Stage and Primary Stages.
James Steinberg and Karolynn Lestrud co-chair the event, which annually develops a handful of new plays and one dance piece. It will run June 17-19.
The plays include Boy Wonders by Joe Tracz, directed by Victor Maog (Second Stage); Courtney Baron's Eat Your Heart Out, directed by Michelle Bossy (Primary Stages); Octavio Solis' Baby Girl, directed by Juliette Carillo (Denver Center Theatre Company); and Deborah Stein and Suli Holum's Chimera (Actors Theatre of Louisville).
Princess Grace Award-winning dancer-choreographer Kyle Abraham will offer a concert of dance works from his repertoire and a new piece conceived for the festival.
