New York City
An evening on short plays which will include:
Tongue, Tied by M. Thomas Cooper
Plagued by malcontent sock puppets, two lost souls seek professional help. A zany and raucous exploration of accepting oddity–even if it’s stuck to your hand.
Dead Right by Elaine Jarvik
A friend’s flawed obituary propels Penny and her unwitting husband Bill headlong into prickly unanswered questions about their own lives. A touching comedy about who we are, how we see ourselves and how we hope to be remembered.
In Paris You Will Find Many Baguettes but Only One True Love by Michael Lew
Liz is looking for love and Lindy is looking to fix her broken heart–so they head, of course, to Paris. When Liz finds the man of her dreams, Lindy faces a decision: can we just let our friends be happy? Advisory: This play contains a mime.
One Short Sleepe by Naomi Wallace
A young Lebanese student spins a web of connections between what he knew, what his sister saw, and the war that threatened them both.
The Humana Festival of New American Plays is an annual site of pilgrimage where theatre lovers from around the world converge to get the first look at the future of the American theatre.
