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.

A retelling of the Jesus story from the point of view of his younger brother, James, who is left trying to hold the family together and keep everyone out of trouble while Jesus is off preaching radical civil disobedience and a new world order.
