newTACTics New Play Festival
June 7th-29th, 2017

Wednesday and Thursday evenings at 7PM

Now in its seventh season, the newTACTics New Play Festival (Owen Thompson and Yetti Steinman, Producers) is an important part of the TACT landscape, developing new works, nurturing new voices, and encouraging language-driven, thought-provoking plays for the stage.  Of the 26 plays newTACTics has helped nurture, 12 have gone on to further production in theatres across the U.S., Canada, and Europe. This season TACT proudly presented Jeff Talbott’s The Gravedigger’s Lullaby on our Mainstage – a play developed through newTACTics.

The Seventh Annual newTACTics New Play Festival brings you a fresh collection of four unpredictable and engaging new works by a diverse group of writers. The original plays at newTACTics always invite you to expect the unexpected, and this year’s offerings are no exception.

All performances will take place at the TACT Studio at 900 Broadway Suite 905. Each reading will be preceded by a complimentary wine reception beginning at 6:30PM, and followed by a moderated talkback with the cast, director, and playwright.

Admission is free of charge and open to the public, and reservations are required.
