Event Description
NEWvember 2015 Festival Pass

Tangent Theatre Company, in association with AboutFACE Ireland, presents their fifth NEWvember New Plays Festival - new plays, bold voices, one weekend. See all six compelling works by these emerging playwrights, via rehearsed staged readings.


November 5, Thursday 8pm:


The Third Rail by Jacob Perkins:  Two couples are reeling (and concealing) as past secrets start coming to light and the fragility of love is examined in this sensitive, surprising story set in winter-night Brooklyn.


November 6, Friday 8pm:


The Mongoose by Will Arbery:  Young Kay tries to hold her family together, as Mom goes missing, Dad brings home strange men, Joe grows violent, and Maddy talks with a mongoose in the walls, in this wild, astounding family drama.


(post-show Q+A with playwright)


November 7, Saturday 2pm:


Last Flight of the Mercenary by Karen Howes: A fantastical romantic comedy of star-crossed love and quantum mechanics, set at a Canadian cliff side B+B, which hosts weddings that tend to turn out catastrophically.


(post-show Q+A with playwright)


November 7, Saturday 8pm:


The Other Genius by Steven Haworth: A razor-sharp comedy of love triangles, master criminals, art deals, family secrets, murder plots, Oedipal rivalry and Serbian ninjas.


(post-show Q+A with playwright)


November 8, Sunday 2pm:


The Orange Garden by Joanna Garner:  In this political drama set in 1970s Iran and America, Peace Corps volunteer John finds himself caught up in a culture-clash whirlwind of danger and forbidden romance.


November 8, Sunday 6pm (note showtime):


Love, Love: Last Stand at Helm's Deep by Peter Papadopoulos: It's the end of the world, and Kit, Von, Helen and Carter are trying to hold on, in this bold tale of love and loss, computers and cockroaches, and stardust.


(post-show Q+A with playwright)
