New Ideas Festival is an annual three-week juried festival of new writing and works-in-progress, with a different program of plays each week and staged readings on Saturdays at noon.

The 2018 festival takes place in the Studio Theatre at Alumnae. We invite you to come enjoy three evenings of original plays and three Saturday readings, and give the playwrights your feedback.
