A Danger to Yourself and Others by Colette Mazunik

September 17, 2022 at 2:00PM

New Works Festival

At the Ninth Annual New Works Festival, you will experience a weekend of brand new plays read, in some cases for the first time aloud, by professional actors. The finalists are selected from over 100 plays submitted by playwrights from all over the country.

When Eddie, anxious and in debt, tries to rob a gas station, he instead falls for the station clerk, bungles a burglary, gets caught with a weapon, evades hospitalization, flees from the police, and has his library card revoked—but hey, at least he meets the woman of his dreams! “A Danger to Yourself and Others” is a farcical look at what it’s like navigating life with anxiety, never knowing if the gnawing feeling in your gut is your intuition or your irrational fear.

Each New Works Festival play will be performed as a staged reading featuring professional actors and a post-show Q&A with the playwright.
