May 24 to May 26, 2018
Weston’s First Annual New Works Festival is a two-week celebration of nationally recognized artists creating new work at varying stages of development. The first year series includes actor/writer Molly Regan’s one-woman play The Accidental Curator, presented in a fully staged workshop production following development at New York’s Ensemble Studio Theatre and Chicago’s Steppenwolf. Kait Kerrigan’s Father/Daughter will receive its first ever public reading, and Judith Sloan’s Yo Miss!, developed in part at a Weston Artists Retreat, will take its next leap in a full onstage reading.
Festival Passholders receive discounts, guaranteed seats for the readings, and an invitation to an evening of selections from our Young Playwrights program in which teaching artists mentor local students to find their voice in original short plays. Visit westonplayhouse.org for the full schedule, details about each project, and ticket information.
