FreshPlayFreshPlay Festival 2015
MCC Theaterís FreshPlay Festival merges the voices and creativity of urban youth with the experience of professionals, creating provocative, innovative, and fresh theater. The 2015 FreshPlay Festival will focus on the process of workshops with seven original plays penned by MCCís Youth Company Playwrights.

Over the course of six days (July 12-17), our seven young playwrights will receive a combined 192 hours of rehearsals under the guidance of six professional directors and with the participation of over 50 performers. After 24 hours of process-based workshops, each play will receive a culminating reading.

These free readings are open to the public and performed at
Telsey + Company
311 W 43rd Street, 10th Floor
