New Ambassadors Theatre Company to Present BLURRING BOUNDARIES Short Play Festival This Month

New Ambassadors Theatre Company will plunge into unexplored depths with seven boundary-pushing short plays amplifying LGBTQ+, BIPOC, and marginalized voices.

Artistic Director David Adam Gill, Associate Artistic Director Jennifer Downes, and Managing Director Maile Binion will bring this diverse group of pieces to the stage as the second New Ambassadors Theatre offering of the 2023 season.

Blurring Boundaries 2023 is composed of seven short plays: "Fragile" by Dana Leslie Goldstein, "Settings" by John Peña Griswold, "The End of Society" by Ben Scranton, "Prewriteen" by Erin Moughon, "Wednesday in the Park with Blake" by Nancy Hamada, "In the Garden of the Hesperides" by David Adam Gill, and "Podunk" by David Taylor Little.

New Ambassadors Theatre Company is a not-for-profit collective of artists engaged in robustly investigating and supporting new works. The company relies on the cumulative power of its multi-disciplinary and diverse artists to enable inspiring, boundary-pushing, and radically inclusive theater. "New Ambassadors Theatre Company is quickly becoming a theatrical force to be reckoned with. This is a group that has a little engine-that-could attitude and a company of talent that is beginning to develop a reputation for consistently delivering fine work." says Edward Medina, of TheatreReviewNYC.
