THE MARTHA HEASLEY COX VIRGIN PLAY FESTIVAL

SEE EVENT DETAILS
The Festival will continue with weekly readings, including Apologies to Lorraine Hansberry (You Too August Wilson) by Rachel Lynett, in January 2021. New playwrights, plays and dates will be announced on Magic's website.

"While we may be separated physically, we are still thrilled to bring exceptional playwrights from all over to our virtual 'theatre space' to support and celebrate the new play process in this longer format of weekly readings. The online platform allows us the gift of time with writers" says Sonia Fernandez, Interim Artistic Director. "Our Virgin Play festival is our opportunity to empower playwrights--to get to know new writers and deepen our relationships with playwrights we love. It is our sincere pleasure to be able to invite our Magic Family patrons to peek behind the curtain of new-play development and enjoy our extended festival of groundbreaking plays online."

When my Mama was a Hittite

Written by Melis Aker
Directed by Evren Odcikin

Juggling her dreams of becoming an actress, a strained relationship with her mother, and the never-ending night shift, twenty one-year-old Nur finds herself navigating the complexities of refugee life in London. But when an unwelcome visitor arrives and disrupts the fragile peace of their lives, Nur and her family must stare down the betrayals of their past, the harsh realities of the present, and all there is between them that has been left unsaid.

One moment, American photo-journalist Mia is out in the field photographing a massacre; the next moment, she finds herself on the couch of her on-again, off-again girlfriend in Istanbul, with no memory of how she got there. With only the photos on her camera as clues, Mia attempts to piece together the events of that evening. Mona Mansour's unseen deftly reveals snippets of Mia's relationships with her camera's subjects, her mother, and her Turkish lover to document the personal journey of recovering memory and wrestling regret

Apologies to Lorriane Hansberry (You Too August Wilson)

Written by Rachel Lynett
Directed by Dawn Monique Williams

Set in the fictional world of a post-second Civil War, Bronx Bay, an all-black state (and neighborhood) is established in order to protect "blackness." It's a utopia but enforcing utopia proves to be tricky when it comes to defining who is Black and who isn't.
