20 WRITERS. 9 NEW PLAYS.  3 WORLD PREMIERE PRODUCTIONS.

The New York New Playwright Festival (NYNP) was created in 2011 with the focus on playwrights and development of new work.  We wanted to break the endless cycle of readings that many plays get stuff in, by giving writers a chance to see their work up and on its feet before an audience in a review-free, supportive environment.  It is the goal of NYNP to allow each piece in the festival the space to grow with and in front of an audience, by providing writers with the tools to mount a workshop production of their new play and “test it” with Project Y.

Maimed
by Barry Levey
directed by Ian Morgan
Featuring Jackie Hoffman

As a child, Etan delights in his Aunt Miriam’s free spirit. But as he grows, he discovers her eccentricity masks an illness neither knows how to handle. A boy comes of age while his aunt comes undone in this comedy about a woman whose tall tales shape her nephew’s life, even as they stunt her own.
