Underground New Play Festival

102 3rd Street SouthEast

TCR’s annual Underground New Play Festival will be held August. This year’s submissions reflect the theme “Out There: Science, Technology, Fantasy and Humanity” and will feature festival headliner, Rob Merritt’s Aurora, a follow-up to The Summerland Project.

NEW to this year’s Festival – we are offering a Festival Pass option to make it easier to see all thirteen Festival shows and immerse yourself in new works!
