The Theatre Alliance of Greater Philadelphia presents the inaugural year of The Philadelphia New Play Festival: Where Theatre Begins, a multi-organizational and region-wide effort that features nine main stage World Premieres by the region's leading theatre companies, as well as several readings, symposia, and discussions designed to give birth to new material while celebrating Philadelphia as a thriving center for first-class theatre.
World Premieres are presented by Arden Theatre Company, InterAct Theatre Company, The People's Light & Theatre Company, Philadelphia Theatre Company, Prince Music Theater, Theatre Exile, The Vagabond Acting Troupe, Walnut Street Theatre, and The Wilma Theater. Rather than representing one centralized artistic point of view, each participating theater is solely responsible for the selection and production of a play that is reflective of its individual mission and theatrical vision. Other companies involved include Flashpoint Theatre Company, Hedgerow Theatre, Madhouse Theater Company, Philadelphia Dramatists Center, and Philadelphia Young Playwrights.
The World Premieres are:
Dex and Julie Sittin' in a Tree
A House With No Walls
Anne of Green Gables
Nerds:// A Musical Software Satire
Hearts & Soles
The Wedding Consultant
Enemies, A Love Story
