New York, NY – Atlantic Theater Company will present First Gen MixFest, a series of free readings co-produced by playwrights Ngozi Anyanwu and Sanaz Toossi, that will run at Atlantic’s Linda Gross Theater August 8-17, 2022.

First Gen MixFest will include readings of full-length plays by Ngozi Anyanwu, Katie Đỗ, Keiko Green, and Alex Riad. The festival will also include readings of one-acts written by Bleu Beckford-Burrell, Shayan Lotfi, Roger Q. Mason, and juliany taveras.

“It was so exciting to read so many plays from my fellow first generation playwrights and talking about them with Sanaz,” said Ngozi Anyanwu. “I wish we could have done a reading for all of them. But we hope you enjoy the artists that the Atlantic will be showcasing during this year’s MixFest as we explore stories by children of immigrants.” 

Sanaz Toossi added, “I am thrilled to be co-curating this year's First Gen MixFest at my artistic home with the legendary Ngozi Anyanwu. MixFest launched my career and I'm honored to be back at the Atlantic with Ngozi and our spectacular lineup of full length plays and commissioned artists.”
