The Emerging Artists Festival, scheduled to take place at Renaissance Theatre in nearby Mansfield on three consecutive Fridays, September 15, 22, and 29, is more than just an event. It’s a celebration of creativity, innovation, and the relentless pursuit of artistic expression. Designed to guide, encourage, and support artists of all ages, this festival is a beacon for those who wish to find their voice through the creation of original works.

With over 250 submissions, the festival has selected three never-before-seen plays that promise to ignite emotions, humor, and vulnerability on stage. These plays are not just performances; they are a testament to the power of storytelling and the magic of theatre.

The festival’s lineup is a carefully curated selection of works that reflect the diversity and richness of contemporary theatre. Here’s what to expect:

  • “I loved a certain person ardently” by Scott Carter Cooper (September 15th): A poetic exploration of love, longing, and the complexities of human emotions.
  • “Merchant of Stratford” by Maury Zeff (September 22nd): A modern twist on classic themes, this play challenges societal norms and provokes thought.
  • “Arbor” by Catherine Epstein (September 29th): A touching story that weaves together nature, family, and the human condition.

These plays are not just entertainment; they are a window into the minds of emerging artists who are shaping the future of theatre.
