Underground New Play Festival-UNPF Showcase A
Celebrate the artistic achievements of our undergraduate playwrights, directors, designers, and actors in a festival dedicated to world-premiere plays and work created entirely by undergrads.
Every year, the Underground New Play Festival selects and mounts a full production for 5 new short plays. New and experienced directors, designers, and actors join together to create works of art bigger than any one person could hope for; works of art that could not exist as they do in any other place, with any other artists.
UNPF Showcase A
As Luck Would Have It
by Audrey Sechrest
directed by Leilani Tuiletufuga
The quarantine has entered its second day, but the disease has already hit critical mass. Bruce is holed up in his store, cleaning up the pieces, and Harrison is just looking for supplies. But in the post-quarantine world, trusting a stranger is signing your death warrant.
The Monster's Return
by Aleksandra Konstantinovic
directed by Allison Win
Returning home for his estranged father's funeral, the last thing Jaime wants to see is his childhood bully. The only thing is that Jaime's bully happens to be the monster in his closet, and that monster is more than happy to see him again.
5 Minutes to Curtain
by Kirstin Rower
directed by Kylie Holloway
Most of the cast is missing, someone's been set on fire, the director is convinced he's a genius, and tech is nowhere near done. Oh, and the house opens in half an hour - the dysfunctional cast and crew of "Polonius: A Song Unsung" will have to muddle through somehow or other.
