Three theatrical storytellers weave vastly different tales of personal journeys and unexpected realizations. H.R. Britton's Melting in Madras provides a look at his quixotic pilgrimage to India and his slightly misguided adventures into the terrain of sickness and delusion, and back again. In a raunchy, embarrassing expose of adolescent sexuality, Maggie Lauren recounts tales of growing up Absurdly Normal. A man is forced to reevaluate the meaning of family when he discovers a secret baby brother and sister on a visit to Vietnam in Martin Dockery's The Surprise. A.N.T. FEST is six weeks of mayhem featuring fresh material from today's most daring emerging artists. For thirty crazy nights, the festival will push the boundaries of live entertainment by bringing talented performers from many disciplines together under one roof. Ars Nova is dedicated to spotlighting New York's next wave of songwriters, bands, comedy artists, theater-makers, storytellers and genre-defying performers. A.N.T. FEST 08 takes that mission to the next level. Expect an unmissable adventure, from beginning to trend! Check out the full festival line up by searching A.N.T. FEST.
