The University of Texas Department of Theatre and Dance at Austin presents UTNT (UT New Theatre), November 5-20, 2020 in a series of unique virtual performances.

Now in its thirteenth year, UTNT brings to the stage compelling works by ascending playwrights. This season, UTNT (UT New Theatre) will take place twice, presenting a variety of all new works in the fall (Part One) and spring semesters (Part Two). Performance titles for UTNT (UT New Theatre, Part Two will be announced later this fall.

Wyeth Airlines Flight Thirteen is a coming-of-age story that follows a group of middle-schoolers who lose the ability to play. At the start of seventh grade, Harlequin, Shoebill, Cygnet and Finch are as close as can be. United by a shared fantasy life and bird nicknames, they're positive they know everything about their world. None of them are prepared for the moment when their games stop being real, overshadowed by the new monsters of illness, grades, and crushes. As one by one, they lose the safety of their imagined space, their tight-knit group fractures under the pressure to fit in, find love, and group up.
