TheatreWorks' 2013 New Works Festival

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Continuing its commitment to developing new works, TheatreWorks, the nationally-acclaimed theatre of Silicon Valley, will once again assemble playwrights and composers from across the nation in its 2013 New Works Festival. The twelfth annual Festival runs August 10-18 at TheatreWorks at the Lucie Stern Theatre in Palo Alto, with multiple staged readings of five new plays and musicals, a panel discussion, live outdoor music from local musicians, and pre-show food truck offerings, all open to the public. Each new work has the opportunity to be revised throughout the process as playwrights and composers respond to audience feedback, continuing to refine their material over a series of performances. This year’s festival will feature LAUGH, an edgy new farce inspired by the slapstick comedies of Hollywood’s Roaring 20s, from Pulitzer-winning playwright Beth Henley; CUBAMOR, a saucy cross-cultural musical romance directed by Kent Nicholson; MRS. HUGHES, a sensational musical drama about the tangled lives of Sylvia Plath, her husband Ted Hughes, and his mistress Assia; THE GREAT PRETENDER, a bittersweet comedy by David West Read (Broadway’s The Performers); and GATHER AT THE RIVER, a captivating comic drama from Laura Marks (Bethany) about a liberal New Yorker who volunteers for a non-profit run by a Bible-thumping Kentucky clan. Festival-goers have the opportunity to interact directly with the writers in a special Meet the Artists Panel at 4:00pm, August 18. For the first time ever, the Meet the Artists Panel will be live-streamed online through HowlRound TV, allowing audiences around the world to participate. Available at the Festival will be local Bay Area food trucks such as Curry Up Now, We Sushi, MoGo BBQ, and more, where attendees can enjoy gourmet quick meals between performances.
