For a second year, Hubbard Hall in Cambridge, New York is presenting a festival of new plays by a wide range of writers from around the country. There will be three different programs with seven plays in each of the two weekend evenings and three plays on the matinees both weekends, January 22 to the 31. Tickets are ten dollars for adults and five dollars for students. Those with a $25 theatre pass have access to all the plays, as do those who have a Hubbard Hall season pass.
David Snider, the Executive Artistic Director of Hubbard Hall talked with Bob and me about the program. Among the exciting and varied plays are four plays from the 365 Women a Year Project. This project focuses on plays about women written by women about notable women from the past and the present. Recent Bennington College graduate Natalie Osborne and current Bennington College junior and director, Sarah Jack, are responsible for these plays. They joined David on our program to talk about this project and their own work in theatre and college.
