ABOUT THE PRODUCTION
Luna Theater concludes its 10th season with its first ever world premiere Play Festival. With over 125 submissions considered, the Luna staff narrowed down the list to 10 pieces all dealing with our season theme of "Identity Crisis." All the playwrights chosen ended up being American, with four of them (Kate Brennan, Joy Cutler, Quinn D. Eli and Alex Dremann) from Philadelphia. The Festival is a collaboration between Luna Theater Company and the Idiopathic Riduculothopy Consortium, Bright Light Theatre Company and The Renegade Company.
