A new play by Yani Perez (Creative Writing MFA alum) will be performed in August, at New Perspectives Theatre Company's Women’s Work Short Play Festival (August 4-9).
Now in its 7th year, each Short Play Festival is created in NPTC’s Women’s Work LAB, in which a theme is given to new members in February and resident directors collectively dramaturge the scripts and bring them to production quality. The festival then provides the critical development tool of putting scripts on their feet fully rehearsed in a bare bones production.
Go here for ticket information, directions to the theatre, and a full schedule of performances.
Here's the description of Yani's play...
God Don’t Exist for Girls From Brooklyn
