Festival Watch


The winter is a busy time for new-work development. Here's a roundup of this winter's festivals from coast to coast.

LOS ANGELES: Phillip William Brock joins Moving Arts's Winner's Circle, starting Feb. 10, when his one-act play The Normal Child is presented in the Los Angeles troupe's 12th annual one-act festival. The busy theatre, founded in 1992 by Lee Wochner and Julie Briggs, is also debuting the work of the festival finalists in its black box in Silver Lake. Visit www.movingarts.org.

LOUISVILLE, KY.: The Humana Festival of New American Plays is 30 years old this season, and Marc Masterson, artistic director of Actors Theatre of Louisville, celebrates this watermark moment, March 7-April 8, with 16 productions of new and established writers. This year's choices are Natural Selection by Eric Coble; Low's Journey: Diary of a Psychotic Rapper by Rha Goddess; Act a Lady by Jordan Harrison; Hotel Cassiopeia by Charles Mee; The Scene by Theresa Rebeck; and Six Years by Sharr White.
