Iowa New Play Festival 2018
The first week of May is a special time for us, as we mount our annual Iowa New Play Festival (NPF). Join our annual week-long festival of new work written by MFA and undergraduate playwrights. Four full productions and daily staged readings are presented to audiences that include visiting professional writers, dramaturgs, directors, producers, theatre lovers, and new play enthusiasts. Iowa New Play Festival 2018 will take place April 30-May 4.
Festival participants also have opportunities to discuss these new works through workshops, roundtable discussions, and receptions.
Tickets for Iowa New Play Festival productions are $5 for non-students and free for UI students (with a valid ID). Tickets for Readings are free, but you must obtain a ticket. They are available one hour before show time in the Theatre Building lobby.
Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa-sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact the Department of Theatre Arts in advance at 319.335.2700.
