Weird Sh*t New Works Play Festival


Past Event

Location Info:

Rec Room

Houston, TX  77002
Rec Room likes things weird. Now it’s producing the Weird Sh*t New Works Play Festival, which delves into the wacky imaginations of local playwrights. Organizer Grace Cunyas says the festival aims to fill a void in the Houston dramatic landscape. “We wanted to do a new-works festival solely dedicated to producing plays that can’t really be produced because of their weirdness. But also plays that are just good, you know?” Each date is different: There’s a new play slam, a couple of nights of ten-minute plays, and a closing night that doubles as a celebration of the fact that the school semester has finally ended.

8 p.m. December 14, 15 and 16; 9 p.m. December 17. 100 Jackson. For information, call 713-344-1291 or visit $10.
