This November, join us at the stunning Montalvo Arts Center for our 19th New Works Festival!

It’s in our DNA at TheatreWorks to gather our friends and family and build community around the creation of new plays for the American theatre. Plays that celebrate the human condition—stories that build understanding, that entertain, that take us to new surroundings, new emotions, and new heights!

We can’t wait to share this journey with you. See you there!

In partnership with Montalvo Arts Center, and its Lucas Artists Program.
