The NEWvember New Plays Festival began in 2011, a co-production with AboutFACE Ireland and our colleagues Anna and Paul Nugent. Each year we receive hundreds of play submissions, with so many compelling and exciting voices. This year, we are presenting plays that were prior NEWvember finalists - stories that deserve their time in the spotlight.
This project was made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a re-grant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and administered by Arts Mid Hudson.
With fiscal sponsorship by the Town of Red Hook New York.
