The Theatre @ Boston Court's Annual New Play Festival

Playwrights, directors, and actors come together in a brief burst of creative collaboration to explore works that, in keeping with Boston Court's style, challenge both artist and audience. Historically, this new play festival has been a fertile breeding ground for plays that end up in future seasons, allowing patrons be among the first to see plays that could appear as full productions.
