Workshop performances of eight New Works Festival plays will be streamed at scheduled times August 5 through 15, 2021, over the two weekends, Thursday through Sunday.

“The plays we are developing for 2021 are examining our extraordinary and challenging historical moment,” states Artistic Director/Producer Robert Egan. “Our OPC team is tremendously excited with the playwrights in this year’s programming. They are a powerful collection of the most imaginative, engaging, and committed writers today. They are the present and the future of American theatre. Their work will ignite an invaluable pipeline of creativity for theatre communities across the country.”
