The Underground New Play Festival

UC San Diego Theater & Dance
May 23 – June 4

The Underground New Play Festival has one simple goal this year: to find the unfamiliar in the familiar. We provide a venue for developing theatre artists to explore new areas and delve deeper into the familiar ones. The end result is richly textured, highly physicalized theatre that shows the infinite number of contradictions and similarities contained in each human.

Every year, the Underground New Play Festival selects and mounts a full production for 6-8 new short plays. New and experienced directors, designers, and actors join together to create works of art bigger than any one person could hope for; works of art that could not exist as they do in any other place, with any other artists.

Venue: Arthur Wagner Theatre
