New York, NY – Columbia University School of the Arts has announced the third round of its New Plays Festival, presenting the work of the 2020, 2021, and 2022 playwrights of the MFA Theatre program at Columbia. The festival will run continuously throughout the summer.
The plays featured include It Will Rise Soon Enough by Fiona Gorry-Hines; This Hair I Tear Is Mine by Evie Mason; Pair by Kate Pressman; Accidental Feminist by Alaudin Ullah; ...enough by Tré Calhoun; Nine Ways to Plead With a God by Kanika Asavari Vaish; camp champ by morgan mcnaught; Tom by Daniel Irving Rattner; and I’ve never planned to be on this earth long by Clarity Bian
From the Head of Playwriting, David Henry Hwang: “These plays have been created by visionary writers under extraordinary circumstances. Some were originally scheduled to be produced as far back as 2020; others were written during the pandemic itself. Like theatre itself, they have survived the shutdown of our art form to come roaring back to life. We are so proud of what our writers have achieved during these challenging and traumatic times. Enjoy the rebirth!”
