NewFest 2023:
New Play Workshop

Directed by TBA

As part of our annual New Works Festival in Spring 2023, we will produce a workshop version of a new play by a professional playwright, directed by a guest director who already has a working relationship with the playwright and play. The guest playwright and guest director pair will work closely with students in our undergraduate program who will serve as actors, designers, stage managers, dramaturgs, related assistants, observers, and other production roles. The title and playwright/directing team will be announced in fall 2023.

MARCH 23–26, 2023
Greene Theater

All performances open to the public
Tickets available August 2022
