The LaBute New Theater Festival is composed of three premiere one-acts by Tony Award-nominated playwright Neil LaBute:
Unlikely Japan (world premiere), directed by Neil LaBute, starring Gia Crovatin (Billions). In Unlikely Japan, a young woman spots an old flame on television and vividly recounts how a single choice can alter the course of multiple lives.
Great Negro Works of Art (world premiere), directed by John Pierson, starring KeiLyn Durrell (Better Call Saul) and Brenda Meaney (Indian Ink). Great Negro Works of Art follows a meeting between an under-celebrated artist and his gallery manager as they debate race, culture, and what qualifies as art today.
The Fourth Reich (New York premiere), directed by John Pierson, starring Eric Dean White (Chicago Fire). The Fourth Reich focuses on a public speaker as he presents his unique views on modern history, thoughts about the future, and ruminations on his favorite painter.
