You have four chances -- two today, two on Sunday -- to hear what the young playwrights at Miami's New World School of the Arts have on their minds.
Ten new student plays are being done at this year's New Playwright Festival, which happens today at 4:30 and 7:30 p.m., Sunday at 1 and 4 p.m. in Studio 5902 and 5903 on the ninth floor at the school, 25 NE Second St. And you can see it all for free.
The lineup includes Samantha Fraga's Pretend (pictured at left), a play that blurs the line between life and fairy-tale, and I Lost My Mind With the Easter Eggs, a piece about a father trying to persuade his daughter that there is no Easter Bunny; Sasha Vokovic's Cure, a mixed-media work about the thoughts of a serial killer; Chrystie Martinez's Roar, about a rampaging beast; Hannah Benitez's Boom, a post-Apocalyptic play, and When I Fly Around, a piece imagining flight; Ana Heretoiu's Jelly Bean, I stole your heart, which involves a tango and jelly beans; Mark Della Ventura's Bill & Nick, about two boys and a surprising afternoon; and Monica Skoko's Gravity Rides Everything, which looks at the games we all play.
