Boston Court’s New Play Festival

Dec 6, 2010

Boston Court is one of our favorite venues in Pasadena. They do music, poetry, and, of course, theatre, including most recently a play about a font, Futura, which set our typographer’s heart ablaze. Though they’re technically between seasons now (their production of Tennessee Williams’ Camino Real premiers in February), nevertheless they are keeping things dramatic with this weekend’s Annual New Play Festival, PLAY/ground, featuring FREE (!) readings of four new plays: Creation, by Kathryn Walat, Alleluia, The Road, by Luis Alfaro, Underground, by Brian James Polak, and Sense of an Ending, by Ken Urban. More info about the plays and their playwrights can be found here. They all sound interesting, though Underground, in which a lonely young subway musician explores the philosophy of the Unabomber, grabs our attention the most. And did we mention all four readings are free?
