Kitchen Dog Theater's annual New Works Festival features six readings of new plays, as well as the annual collaboration with Junior Players on PUP Fest, readings of works by high school students.

The mainstage production of the New Works Festival is Meridith Friedman's The Firestorm.

 

Here's the line-up of staged readings:

SATURDAY, MAY 30 AT 1PM

Sam and Dede or My Dinner with Andre the Giant by Gino Dilorio 
True story: 12-year old Andre the Giant, already well over 6 feet tall and 240 pounds, didn’t fit on the school bus. Andre’s neighbor, feelings sorry for the boy, offered to drive him to school in his truck. The neighbor was Samuel Beckett. Out of that bit of trivia comes “Sam and Dede, or My Dinner with Andre the Giant,” imagining three scenes between a giant – a man who cannot hide, and a writer obsessed with silence.

SATURDAY, MAY 30 AT 4PM

Tara Obernier by Carrie Barrett
Tara Obernier is just your average gal until a seemingly harmless photo of a construction site launches her into the Internet’s crosshairs. Suddenly, her whole life—including her “janky eyebrows”— is under scrutiny. A dark comedy about fault, virtue and accountability.

 

SATURDAY, JUNE 6 AT 1PM

Advent by Montgomery Sutton
When two brothers, surviving a global catastrophe in the walk-in freezer of a West Texas town superstore, admit a young woman into their isolated new world, sex, grief, and faith unleash their bestial natures, threatening a personal apocalypse of even greater scale.

SATURDAY, JUNE 6 AT 4PM

The Black Slot by Warren Hoffman
When Beth, a white dramaturg, can't get the work of Tim, a hot new African American playwright, produced, the two take on the racial politics of the American regional theater in this darkly comedic satire filled with talking scripts, forgery, and August Wilson.

 

PUP FEST: SATURDAY, JUNE 13 AT 1 and 4PM

Ammosick by Angel Pineda (Booker T. Washington, 12th grade)
Playwrights Witness by Brian Miranda (Thomas Jefferson, 11th grade)
Being Honest by Lizzeth Maldonado (Harmony School of Business - Dallas, 9th grade)
Clowning Around by Lucy Erspamer (Booker T. Washington, 10th grade)
My Favorite Things by Marcelino Vazquez (Bryan Adams, 12th grade)

 

SATURDAY, JUNE 20 AT 1PM

Good Day by Diana Lynn Small
A prodigal daughter returns home, only she can’t get any farther than the front lawn. When three seemingly inconsequential strangers arrive for house calls, she’s pulled and pushed towards the front door and a life-changing confession. Winner of our 2015 KDT/University of Texas MFA Playwrights NWF Project.

SATURDAY, JUNE 20 AT 4PM

The Incident written & performed by Terry Vandivort 
A one-man retelling of one harrowing night set against the backdrop of the underground nightlife in Dallas in the 1970’s.  The traumatic event triggers a decades-long obsession with unravelling the mysteries surrounding that night and the powerful struggle of secrets and shame against forgiveness and freedom.
