Cincinnati LAB Theatre – New Works Festival

CINCINNATI LAB THEATRE ANNOUNCES
2016 NEW WORKS FESTIVAL
August 4 – 13, 2016

Cincinnati LAB Theatre’s New Works Festival will present two fully staged workshop productions and two original play readings in a rotating festival repertoire over two weekends, August 4 – August 13, 2016.  All performances will be presented at Falcon Theatre, 636 Monmouth St, Newport, KY.

Part of Cincinnati LAB Theatre’s mission is to provide area playwrights with opportunities to develop their work through a traditional workshop process, while utilizing some of the area’s finest professional actors. Cincinnati LAB Theatre’s New Works Festival is comprised of three different series that will present new and innovative works in various stages of development, encourage open and honest discussions, and allow audiences an inside look into the creative process.  

WORKSHOP SERIES:   The New Works Festival Workshop Series will present two brand-new worskhop productions written by local playwrights:

Chase the Dragon by Kirk Sheppard.  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.  Chase the Dragon is a brand-new play by Kirk Sheppard that explores the lives of at-risk youth and what happens when we don’t have a handle on our own history.  Directed by Jared D. Doren.  Cast:  Carter Bratton, Rupert Spraul, Bob Allen, Tess Talbot and Henry Howland.  Performances August 4, 6, and 12, 2016, at 8pm.

Judas by Elizabeth a. Harris.  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?  Judas, a new play by Elizabeth a. Harris, based on the Gospel of Judas, 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?”  Directed by Elizabeth a. Harris.  Cast:  Brian Berendts and Derek Snow.  Performances August 5, 11, and 13, 2016 at 8pm.

 

DISCOVERY SERIES:  The New Works Festival Discovery Series will complement our Workshop Series productions.  Guest speakers and/or panelists will lead pre-show discussions that focus on social themes and current topics related to the productions.  Pre-performance lectures are scheduled on Thursday, August. 4 (Chase the Dragon) and Thursday, August 11 (Judas) at 7pm.

 

PLAY READING SERIES:  The New Works Festival Play Reading Series will present readings of new plays currently under development by local playwrights.

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. Saturday, August 5, 2016 at 5:30pm.

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.  Saturday, August 12, 2016 at 5:30pm.

Up next: Next Fall

Next Fall Poster FinalNext Fall
By Geoffrey Nauffts

Next Fall takes a witty and provocative look at faith, commitment and unconditional love. While the play’s central story focuses on the five-year relationship between Adam and Luke, Next Fall goes beyond a typical love story. This timely and compelling new American play forces us all to examine what it means to “believe” and what it might cost us not to.

Directed by Tara Williams & Clint Ibele
Cast:
Adam – Brian Anderson
Luke – Matthew Wilson
Holly – Lauren Carr
Brandon – Michael Monks
Arlene – Tracy M. Schoster
Butch – Allen R. Middleton
