Photo Flash: Theatre Southwest Presents the 20th Annual Festival of Originals
Theatre Southwest presents the 20th Annual Festival of Originals (FOO). Produced by Artistic Director Mimi Holloway, The FOO produces five original 20-minute plays from writers across the country (and sometimes the world.) Five casts and five directors from all across the Houston and surrounding areas then come together to bring these five original plays to life.
