NEW PLAYS NOW will be presented at The Ford Studio of The Signature Theatre at Pershing Square, 480 West 42nd Street, with the exception of The Big White Door, which will be held at The Riverside Church, 91 Claremont Ave. Festival runs from April 3 - 26, 2014.
NEW PLAYS NOW is the annual festival of new plays by emerging artists from the MFA Theatre Program at Columbia University School of the Arts. Taught by a faculty of internationally renowned creators, practitioners, producers and scholars, the Program provides students with the foundation for a career in professional theatre, with programs in Acting, Directing, Playwriting, Dramaturgy, Stage Management, and Theatre Management & Producing. Presented annually, these productions are a laboratory for students' dramatic experimentation and a glimpse-for theatre-goers-of what's next.
NEW PLAYS NOW features plays by Alexandra Bassett, Sander Gusinow, Mustafa Kaymak, Claytie Mason, Ashley Minihan, Rebecca Nichloson, Bryan Quick, Celine Song, and Michael Walek.
