New Works Festival
The Hippodrome’s New Works Festival celebrates Florida’s diverse playwriting talents. The hand-picked finalists will work with directors, actors and producers to develop and workshop their plays, ending with a staged reading production on the Hippodrome mainstage.
From a mother on a magical journey in search of her lost child, to a lifelong friendship connected through tragedies and heartaches, to a musical experiment in five words, to the Shakespeare’s Apothecary fighting the ghost of Romeo, to a rap drama exploring the trap of survival, these plays run the gamut of human experience.
Get a backstage peek at up and coming playwrights and enjoy your front row seat as brand new plays are born.
