About the Festival:
Now in its eighth year, the ALNPF provides an opportunity for playwrights to hear, see, and receive feedback on their original work. The festival brings each playwright together with a dramaturg, director, and actors to bring their play to life as a staged reading in front of an audience. Additionally, the selected works will receive a preliminary reading (the "kickoff" event) on Feb. 1 to give playwrights an opportunity to revise their work before rehearsals begin in May. The Austin Latinx New Play Festival will take place at the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center.

My Mother the Sun by Massi Monfiletto (Bilingual English/Spanish)
The Cucuy Will Find You by Jaymes Sanchez (Bilingual English/Spanish)
