About this show

The ID America Festival features 24 short plays about American identity, written by playwrights from around the nation. The festival was inspired by the growing concern by Quo Vadimus Arts over the polarization of media in America. News organizations are increasingly biased towards the left or right, and it is rare to find an open forum where differing points of view are given equal weight. The festival is designed to question, explore, challenge and celebrate what it means to be living in America today. At the end of the festival, a panel of judges selects 4-5 plays to be part of an evening of winning plays. The winning plays will also be taken on a national tour of universities and regional theaters. The plays selected for the ID America Festival are: The New Sign by K. Biadaszkiewicz Human Resources by Mike Folie Onus On Us by Cheryl Games Moment by Matt Haldeman To Darfur by Erik Christian Hanson Interpreting a Dream by Judy Klass Run of the River by William Kovacsik Superhero by Mark Harvey Levine Here To Serve You by Barbara Lindsay Soapbox by Carl Brandt Long Peace Talk by James McLindon Alarm by Paul Moulton Prospect Park by Brendan O'Brien Upgrade by Albert Pergande Night Before Last by Doug Reed Asparagus by Schatzie Schaefers Normal Is A Country by Steven Schutzman Appetite by Caren Skibell Shift: A Political Allegory by Jordan Smedberg Close Encounter by Amy Tofte Simultaneity by Melanie Wallner Followed by Edith Weiss Please Pass the Salt by Debbie Wiess Bobby Hebert by Samuel Brett Williams
