New Voices | New Visions celebrates the talents of the rising generation of directors and playwrights with an evening of groundbreaking and innovative short plays.
Family Values looks inside a mid-’90s sitcom, where raw emotions fight for attention beneath laugh-track superficiality. In Lessons for an Unaccustomed Bride, a naive young woman seeks help from the town witch, who knows more than the girl expected. Holy Sh*t pits a single mother against her old nemesis, the nun in charge of her daughter’s school, and asks whatever happened to good old Catholic forgiveness. Beauty Runs on Light Feet offers a compelling snapshot of family life, in which a husband and wife struggle painfully to express what matters most. For mature audiences.
