New Play Festival

FAU's Theatre Lab hosts New Play Festival 2019

Three days. Five readings of new plays. One electrifying experiment.

Join Theatre Lab as we explore the freshest and most exciting work in American Theatre! This jam-packed festival welcomes some of the nation’s most prominent playwrights as they present readings of their newest work before it lands on stages across the country. Each reading is accompanied by a post-show discussion, an opportunity to interact with the playwrights themselves, where they will discuss the process, inspiration, and plans for future development.

The first event takes place on Friday, January 4th and offers readings of short plays developed as part of the Playwright’s Forum & Master Class Series. These plays were selected from submissions open to participants in the Master Classes and work-shopped with Artistic Director, Matt Stabile, for a month prior to the festival. The playwrights range from the novice to professional and their work showcases some of the exciting new voices in South Florida.

Theatre Lab’s annual New Play Festivals continues their tradition of providing opportunities for emerging and established playwrights to showcase their work. This event is your opportunity to get a sneak-peek at some of the shows that might end up on our stage next season!
