Redwood City Play Festival Co-Produced by Fuse Theatre and Dragon Theatre
The 2019 theme is on gender-based topics, or “Gender Shorts.” The festival will feature three one act plays. Because I Went There is new play written and developed by Fuse Theatre’s ensemble member, Hedi Flores, also a Dragon Board member and will be directed by Stacey Ardelean, Fuse Artistic Director. This project is supported by a CA$H grant from Theatre Bay Area. The second play, Never Swim Alone by Daniel MacIvor, was a submission by Nate Card who will be directing. The third play by Leanna Keyes, Legal-Tender Loving Care will be directed by Keiran Beccia.
The festival includes 2 theatre companies, 3 directors, 7 technical artists, and 13 actors just for the productions. We are also working with community business to expand the festival experience for theatre goers to explore downtown with popup art events, talks and music at local restaurants and cafes during the festival weekend.
