Wagner New Play Festival |
A new play by Ali Viterbi
Directed by Vanessa Stalling
The Wagner New Play Festival features world-premiere productions written by the talented MFA playwrights and directed, acted, stage-managed and designed by the nationally acclaimed MFA companies. The plays represent some of the most original and groundbreaking new voices in American theatre. JOSHUA will be performed as part of the MFA One Acts, at the Arthur Wagner Theatre, along with fellow MFA first-years Dave Harris’ “Tambo and Bones” and Mara Nelson-Greenberg’s “The Clitorish.”
Joshua Synopsis: Anya’s boyfriend was Caleb’s best friend. To commemorate the one-year anniversary of his death, Anya and Caleb ditch school to go to the desert. And maybe fall in love. And maybe conjure a ghost. JOSHUA looks at that moment in time where life moves us from a place of youth and innocence into the place that will shape our adult selves. As we look back, how do we reconcile the missed opportunities, the things we didn’t say, the paths we didn’t take? And will they even matter to our older selves?
