New Play Festival

Join us as we celebrate Eleven East Tennessee playwrights from February 2nd through February 11th, 2024. Nine short plays, one staged reading, and two open-to-the-public table work session. The event will be held at Theatre Knoxville Downtown at 800 S Central St in downtown Knoxville.


Special Thanks to Tiger Lily Theatre and the women who ran it. Without the impact of Founding Artistic Director Jennifer Brown and the company’s original Night of Shorts productions, this step in the festival’s growth would not be the same.


Thank you to our partners and sponsors

This season’s projects are being supported in whole or in part by federal award number SLFRP5534, awarded to the State of Tennessee, the City of Knoxville, and Knox County by the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Arts & Culture Alliance.
