The Firehouse is committed to the development of new work. Over the past 16 years, more than 175 have been performed on our stage first-through our annual Firehouse New Works Festival. This festival fosters the growth of New England playwrights while showcasing the talent of local and regional actors and directors. Playwrights from across New England submit their 10-minute, one-act, and full-length plays to an independent panel who select the festival’s shows in anonymous readings. Directors and their casts then work with selected playwrights to produce two weekends of original theater.
New Works Festival 2019 will be held on
Fridays and Saturdays, January 18 & 19 and 25 & 26, 2019
