Clubbed Thumb has announced the lineup for its annual Summerworks festival of new plays.

The 19th season of Summerworks, which will begin May 30 and continue through July 5 at The Wild Project, will feature 41-Derful, written and directed by Jenny Schwartz (God's Ear, Somewhere Fun); I'm Pretty Fu**ed Up by Ariel Stess (The Only Girl in the Hot Tub, Mother Milk), directed by Kip Fagan; and 16 Words Or Less by Peggy Stafford (Motel Cherry), directed by Portia Krieger. 

In 41-Derful, "two jaded co-workers discover their own version of civic responsibly in the shadow of a disgraced politician's public meltdown."

"Three teenagers ditch school to drive through the mountains of New Mexico, while back on campus an addled security guard faces his demons" in I'm Pretty Fu**ed Up.

"A lone and over-helpful flower shop clerk tries to contain the challenges of her customers' lives, but can't do the same for herself" in 16 Words Or Less.



Performance schedules and casting details will be announced at a later date. 

Summerworks 2014 will also feature various free events, including a collaborative piece and individual readings written by Clubbed Thumb's Early-Career Writers' Group, which comprises Jaclyn Backhaus, Adam Blodgett, Tasha M Gordon-Solmon, Ken Greller, MJ Kaufman, Dan Regelski and Ariel Stess. 

Clubbed Thumb's Summerworks has previously presented new works by Sarah Ruhl, Anne Washburn, Gina Gionfriddo, Ethan Lipton, Adam Bock, Rinne Groff, Jordan Harrison, Sheila Callaghan, Jason Grote, Sam Hunter and Lisa D'Amour.
