New Play Development: International Association for the Fantastic in the Arts

Five new plays.  One rehearsal. One night only.

Since 2016 I've worked with Dr. Carrie J. Cole to produce an evening of new one-acts written and performed by the authors and scholars of the International Association of the Fantastic in the Arts (sci-fi, fantasy, horror, video game studies, folklore, children's literature, and related fields). Many of these plays go on to be produced at other festivals (notably at Otherworld in Chicago). As part of this project I have directed the following new plays:
