Corkscrew Festival

CORKSCREW THEATER FESTIVAL is a brand-new festival coming to NYC this August that aims to increase access to production opportunities for a varied set of early-career artists, especially those who are redefining traditional creative roles and developing work through unusual collaborative models. The 2017 festival includes five new plays with eight performances each, plus a reading series of five plays in development. The festival is presented by The Brewing Dept. and Fortress Productions.

“Corkscrew’s plays this year center on an urgent need to be seen – by the institution that won’t listen to you, by the sibling whose struggles affect both of you, by the boyfriend who doesn’t understand that you’re turning into a werewolf. We’re proud to give these artists and these stories – some joyful, some tragic, some hilarious – the chance to be seen and heard in repertory at Corkscrew Theater Festival.”

— Thomas Kapusta, Artistic Director
