Kairos Italy Theater Announces The Finalists Of The First Round Of The KIT Intl Playwrights Series
On May 18, Kairos Italy Theater and NYU Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò held the online event KIT Intl playwrights series 2020 dedicated to Women in Comedy, a series of 10-minute comic plays from around the globe written by women celebrating Franca Valeri turning 100 this year.
The call received 300 submissions by women playwrights from several countries including Australia, New Zealand, the US, Italy, Greece, Brasil, France, South America, Canada. An international jury of theater makers selected 15 of them. The selected plays were supposed to be presented on April 6 at Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò to an audience that would have voted the best 5 plays. The finalists were to be presented in a semi-staged version on Opening Night of In Scena! Italian Theater Festival NY on April 27.
In adjusting to the current situation, Kairos Italy Theater and Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò presented the first 9 online on May 18 and the audience voted the 3 best 10-minute plays to be translated in Italian and performed at the Lucidosottile (online) Family Festival in early June.
KIT is planning to present the remaining six in the Fall.
The 3 most voted were:
