New Rep presents New Voices Theatre Festival
May 21 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 3:00 pm, repeating until May 22, 2022
New Rep’s first New Voices Theatre Festival will feature three twenty-minute plays directed by Jaime Carrillo, Inés De La Cruz, and Naomi Ibasitas. Each two-person cast will bring these stories to life in the intimate Black Box Theater at the Mosesian Center for the Arts.
AURORA by Ramón Esquivel
The play takes place on an Autumn Night on the Aurora Bridge in Seattle in 2010. Kai has come here to end their life, and Halen tries to stop the attempt. We learn that Halen committed suicide in the same spot two years earlier, and has reappeared to support Kai in this time of crisis. This play employs magical realism in an ultimately uplifting story about depression, grief, metaphysics, and the transcendent nature of love.
ORGANIC by Jenna Jane
In a future where everyone is enhancing their bodies with the latest tech, 81-year-old Donna Goldman is an anomaly – she’s 100 percent organic. But now, there’s a problem: She’s dying. And a bionic body part is the only cure. Will cyborg Dr. Flores persuade her to abandon her sense of self to survive? This sci-fi drama explores the relationship between the body and the self.
BY ANY OTHER NAME by Erin Lerch
The play takes place in the age of space travel. In the aftermath of the disaster that destroyed her home, sole survivor Amaranth must decide who and how she needs to be in order to survive beneath the weight of others’ expectations.
