2019 NEW PLAY FESTIVAL

New Play Festival Sale

 

Three days.  Six readings of new plays.  One electrifying experiment. 
 
Join Theatre Lab as we explore the freshest and most exciting work in American Theatre!  This jam-packed festival welcomes playwrights from across to nation to present readings of their newest work before it lands on stages across the country.  Each reading is accompanied by a post-show discussion, an opportunity to interact with the playwrights themselves, where they will discuss the process, inspiration, and plans for future development. 
 
The plays selected for the 2019 New Play Festival – the fourth of these festivals since Theatre Lab opened its doors in 2015 – reflect some of the most exciting voices of the American Theatre today and continues the tradition of providing opportunities for emerging and established playwrights to showcase their work.  This event is your opportunity to get a sneak-peek at some of the shows that might end up on our stage next season! 
 
FESTIVAL LINE-UP 
  Go. Please. Go.
Go. Please. Go. by Emily Feldman 
 
A couple breaks up. He says he’ll leave, and then he doesn’t. Through bar mitzvahs, baptisms, and funerals, he stays. People get drunk. People get sober. People plan vacations. People die. Somebody wins the lottery. A baby grows up and moves far away. Everybody dances. Years pass in-between two lines of dialogue, lifetimes zoom by in an hour. Set in a stark theatrical landscape, GO. PLEASE. GO. asks what it means to love somebody for a lifetime, and what a lifetime even means. 
 
  Short Play Fest
An Afternoon of Short Plays 
 
These plays were selected from submissions open to participants in the Master Classes and work-shopped with Artistic Director, Matt Stabile, for a month prior to the festival.  The playwrights range from the novice to professional and their work showcases some of the exciting new voices in South Florida. 
 

Or An Astronaut Play
Or, An Astronaut Play by Johnny Lloyd 
 
The Astronaut School has four students - but only one can actually make it to outer space. Who has what it takes? Does anyone even know what it takes? Following the experiences of Daria, an intense, focused student, Claire, a woman struggling to fully realize her own ambitions, Paul, a hobbyist, and Tom, a straight, white, American man, OR AN ASTRONAUT PLAY explores who gets access to the space they want to enter, why, and what’s left for the rest of us.

Michael and Jack are their mother’s pride and joy.  An Irish immigrant, she’s done everything to give her boys the American Dream – including raising them under the protective eye of her beloved Catholic diocese.   
 
Jack becomes a priest, on a “fast track” in the hierarchy; Michael, a college professor.  But when unimaginable secrets are brought to light, everything is jeopardized. 
 
Time moves fluidly in this story that spans over 30 years and reveals the devastating cycles of shame and pain that accompany sexual abuse. 
 

Welcome Home
Welcome Home by Stephen Brown 
 
In WELCOME HOME, a typical day in the life of 19-year-old Tommy involves triple shot lattes, yearning after his assistant manager at Starbucks, and arson at Applebee’s. Such distractions are therapeutic when your older brother has been missing for months, but when a well meaning, if somewhat misguided, therapist shows up on his doorstep, Tommy must finally face his loss. 
 

Billing the NRA
Billing the NRA by Desmond Gallant 
 
During an Easter masquerading as Thanksgiving, Ethen and Lexi struggle to navigate the new norms of their marriage after suffering the devastating loss of their children. While Lexi copes by recommitting to her own dysfunctional family, Ethen discovers purpose in an unconventional series of acts.  As society’s paralysis stokes one man’s fury, the turmoil of a family gathering brings a series of secrets to light.
