Nine of the country’s leading playwrights, including Jose Rivera, Sarah Ruhl, Jon Robin Baitz, and Don DeLillo, were commissioned to offer fresh dramatic perspectives on our planet’s environmental prospect. The readings of the resultant plays will begin at 6:30 p.m on all three nights.
Performances are free and open to the public on a first come, first served basis. For more information, call 212.998.2100.

NYU’s Second Annual Humanities Festival is sponsored by the New York Institute for the Humanities at NYU and NYU’s Humanities Initiative; readings of the nine plays were organized in collaboration with the Continuum Players, who are alumni of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, the CUNY Graduate Center’s Martin E. Segal Theatre Center, and the Chicago Humanities Festival.
