The New Georges Manfest is part play festival and part community forum. New Georges asked six women playwrights to write short plays from the perspective of a man or men. The plays, performed in two evenings, is the centerpiece of a larger conversation (in the form of workshops, round tables, panels, and late-night cabarets) in which women and men talk about writing, directing and acting "the other," and how being female, or male, impacts working artists in the rehearsal room and beyond. THE PLAYWRIGHTS: New short plays by TRISTA BALDWIN, KIRSTEN GREENIDGE, BETTY SHAMIEH, SONYA SOBIESKI, ALICE TUAN, and SHERI WILNER--commissioned especially for MANFEST by New Georges. The plays are performed in two evenings of rotating rep.
