(Reno, NV) Brüka Theatre announces Plays By Big Kids  2 One - Act plays chosen from original plays created by high school students from 3 different Reno High Schools (Reed, Reno and North Valleys) in playwriting workshops conducted by Sandra Brunell Neace, Brüka Theatre's Artist In Residence.  Brüka Theatre collaborated with VSA Arts of Nevada in this community project (The VSA Playwright Discovery Competition) inviting middle and high school students to take a closer look at the world around them, examine how disability affects their lives and the lives of others, and express their views through the art of script writing while working with a professional theatre artist.  Two of the selected pieces will directed by Neace and read by actors at Brüka Theatre on Sunday, May 18, 2014 AT 2 PM.

Plays featured in the series consist of original works from the Brüka ensemble, local and regional playwrights. The intent of the readings is to give authors a chance to hear their work read by actors in front of an audience.  Brüka Theatre does not alter the plays in any way, in an attempt to give the author, audience, and artists a deeper understanding of the process of play development by work-shopping ideas and new works.   For a full schedule, please check our website at

Audiences will enjoy a staged play reading and a discussion immediately following with the author to provide feedback and an open forum about the process. Tickets can be reserved in advance by calling the Brüka Box Office at (775) 323-3221 or purchased at the door on the day of the reading. We validate convenient parking at the Parking Gallery on First and Sierra Street.  Check us out at
