2016 NEW WORKS FESTIVAL
Cincinnati Lab Theatre
Falcon Theatre [Newport]
CHASE THE DRAGON by Kirk Sheppard
Directed by Jared D. Doren
Cast: Carter Bratton, Rupert Spraul, Bob Allen, Tess Talbot & Henry Howland
Peter wants to make a difference; his chosen career path should allow him to do so. But sometimes people run from their past, and other times they chase it. The play explores the lives of at-risk youth and what happens when we don’t have a handle on our own history.
JUDAS by Elizabeth a. Harris
Directed by Elizabeth a. Harris.
Cast: Brian Berendts & Derek Snow
A betrayer, an outcast, a pariah, the lowest of the low: This is Judas. Or is it? How would our views of Christianity and the Messiah change if we discovered Judas was actually Jesus’ most trusted disciple? Based on the Gospel of Judas, the play examines the limits of love and self-sacrifice and asks the question: “What would you do if the person you loved most in the world asked you to perform the ultimate betrayal for the good of all humanity?”
3SOME by Brian Griffin
Expectations are shattered and lives are changed when three strangers meet one evening and get something none of them bargained for.
MEDUSA IN YOU by Valetta Anderson
The murder of the innocents is something no people forget. And the innocents are every woman’s child, whatever age and swaddled in any color of skin.
