WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The New Ground Theatre Festival (NGTF) provides the opportunity for playwrights to develop and showcase their work while offering Cleveland audiences the opportunity to see remarkable new plays come to life. This year's festival features Hi, Are You Single?, about the highs and lows of navigating the gay dating scene with cerebral palsy, written and performed by Parma, Ohio, native Ryan Haddad. This NGTF also includes The Nolan Williams Project, wherein the incredible 100-year history of a family-owned soul food establishment is uncovered when a real estate developer attempts to buy the family out. The Nolan Williams Project is written and composed by Nolan Williams Jr. — an acclaimed voice in musical theater — with a libretto by Pulitzer Prize-nominated playwright Nikkole Salter.
