Readings of new work by U.S. writers Migdalia Cruz, Anton Dudley, Jennifer Haley, Keith Reddin, and Dominic Orlando, as well as plays from Morocco, France, Greece, Portugal, Canada, Germany, and Austria. Festival includes themes about family loyalty and violence as well as contemporary war. Some examples are: Migdalia Cruz’s graphically poetic drama El Grito del Bronx in which convicted killer Papo and and his sister Lulu recount their shared history on the day he is to be executed and she is to be married; José Maria Vieira Mendes’ My Woman, set in contemporary Portugal, which tells the story of the failure of revolutionary ideals through the ongoing battle between parents and their grown children; Heads by E.M. Lewis, a terrifying story of four civilians from America and Great Britain who are kidnapped and held hostage in an underground prison in Iraq; and Militant Language by Sean Christopher Lewis, a story about two American GIs in the middle of a rebuilding effort find themselves covered in blood amongst oil drums and steel girders.
