School of Drama at The New School Presents 2019 New Voices Playwrights Festival

The New School's School of Drama's graduate playwrights will be on display during the New Voices Playwrights Festival with four original plays to be produced in repertory this spring. Showcasing the work of this year's graduating MFA playwrights, the festival also highlights Drama's graduating MFA directors and actors.

For over a decade, graduating School of Drama MFA playwrights have been showcasing their thesis work for the public through the festival, which provides the students a comprehensive, hands-on experience in mounting a fully-produced play prior to leaving school. We are proud to present this festival of engaging new voices from the class of 2019.
