The Gallery Players of Park Slope, Brooklyn are hosting the 16th Annual Black Box New Play Festival. The Festival premieres 12 new plays, varying from 10 minute to full length productions, over the course of four weekends. Each weekend will contain a different program of plays, beginning May 30th and running to June 16th.   Performances will take place at 8:00pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, as well as 3:00 pm on Sunday. Tickets are $18 for adults, $14 for seniors and children under 12.

The Black Box New Play Festival is The Gallery Players’ signature season-ending festival of new works by both new and established playwrights. More than 400 plays have graced our stage in the 15 years of producing the festival, including Nat Cassidy’s The Reckoning of Kit and Little Boots, a New York Innovative Theatre Award-winner for Best Play in 2008. Every year is formatted differently, and you’re bound to discover something new and exciting in this year’s “Box”!
