59E59 and St. Louis Actors' Studio presents the acclaimed LaBute New Theater Festival making its New York debut featuring an evening of 6 one-act plays More…
Selected from among more than 400 annual entries, this festival showcases short works by some of the most talented emerging writers from around the world, including work by Tony-nominated playwright and screenwriter Neil LaBute.
'Stand Up for Oneself': Two unlikely hearts collide at a London house party.
'Present Tense': A social media hook up.
'Two Irishmen are Digging a Ditch': A joke with a hell of a punch line.
"The Comeback Special": A sweet Elvis comedy.
'Coffee House, Greenwich Village': A blind date goes terribly wrong.
'Kandahar': A soldier returns.
See it if you like 3 relatively short plays in one evening; you want to laugh out loud during the third play;
Don't see it if you're tired of plays that involve gays and plays that make fun of the current President
See it if you can't miss a Neil Labute piece - his is by far the best.
Don't see it if you want your one acts to make sense. I feel bad saying this, but the other plays needed much more work.
