There is nothing more important to the long-term vitality of American theatre as an art form than the nurturing of new voices. This virtual festival is a way to engage audiences in work by our in house company, the Forge. The Virtual Festival will present readings of new short plays by contemporary, often local playwrights, giving them and the actors involved, an opportunity to share their work in these extraordinary times.

These are new works written especially for the Virtual Festival. Some of the work  included is part of a new musical by Joanne Hoersch and Donald Stark, monologues by Lia Romeo, Luigi Jannuzzi, Karl Greenberg and Michael Puzzo. Performed by Debbie Bernstein, Kelly McAndrews, Cassandra Giovine, Vincent Sagona, Kevin Cristaldi, Frank Licato, Cynthia Granville, Bess Miller and Sue-Ellen Mandell to name a few. The event is produced by Adrian Wattenmaker.

It celebrates ensemble collaboration as well as artistic risk through its permanent company, guest artists, partner institutions and the surrounding community. It is dedicated to a rugged aesthetic which seeks to tell stories, both new and old, classic and contemporary, that reflect our lives, relationships and the world today.
