New Play Festival

Clark’s theatre program offers many opportunities for young playwrights to develop their works and eventually see them produced on stage. Clark produces a New Play Festival biannually in the Michaelson Theatre, where new plays are given full productions directed by both students and working professionals. The program is headed by award winning playwright Gino DiIorio. We also engage many working theatre professionals in developing these new works, including Cheryl Katz (Luna Stage), Rob Urbinati (Queens Theatre in the Park), and Padraic Lillis (The Labrynth Theatre).
