Playing this Winter
Wagner New Play Festival 2013

Wagner New Play Festival
at UC San Diego 2013

April 17 - 27

This year at WNPF, the plays range in scope from the untold story of Picasso's best friend to the story of a Haitian-American immigrant struggling to make a life for herself in Miami. They take place in Paris at the dawn of the 20th century and China at the dawn of the 21st. They ask questions ranging from what drives a person to catastrophic violence to what price we pay to escape the demons of our past.
