February 9 - February 18
For the sixth year, convergence-continuum continues its successful collaboration with Northeast Ohio Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing and Cleveland State University.
This time we will be presenting two new full-length plays by two different local MFA playwrights. Each play will be performed over the span of one weekend. The first, THE DARKNESS by Katie Wallace, Renee Schilling and Rob Daniels, will be performed Febuary 9-11. The second, SEXUAL POLITICS by Jaclyn Cifranic, will be performed February 16-18.
Tickets for Festival plays are only $10 general admission, $5 students. Further details on the plays and playwrights will be posted on our website (convergence-continuum.org) and Facebook page and sent out in postcards and emails in January.
These plays are the culminating work of the playwrights after undertaking three years of intensive study in the NEOMFA in Creative Writing program, a consortium of Cleveland State University, Kent State University, University of Akron and Youngstown State University.
Be part of the process. Check out what the next generation of playwrights is up to!
