Too often, new writers are encouraged to shrink their ideas down in order to
get their plays produced. Two and three character scripts with one setting are the norm. Mirror Repertory Company believes that in order to create
extraordinary art, writers must work without limits, and so they have created the No Boundaries Play Festival. Writers were invited to write whatever they wanted, letting Mirror Rep worry about solving the technical problems. The results are seven spectacular scripts, four of which are world premieres and three of which are being seen in New York for the first time.
