The Redwood City Play Festival is being jointly produced by Fuse Theatre and Dragon Production Theatre Company. The festival will run June 8-14, 2019 in Redwood City. It will combine the strengths of both companies to produce one act plays and arts events centered around a central social justice theme and will highlight local artists.
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.
