City Theatre is thrilled to announce a power packed lineup for the theatre’s annual Momentum: New Plays at Different Stages Festival.

The 2017 Momentum festival offers a glimpse into four striking plays at different stages by providing developmental opportunities to the country’s hottest writers. This four day festival is a chance for audiences to not only see new works in progress, but to actively participate in the page to stage process and get a glimpse inside the minds of these award winning playwrights.

In addition to the readings, the festival schedule includes a happy hour in which patrons can engage with festival artists, as well as main stage performances of Martyna Majok's riveting Ironbound. Momentum will also present an invite only reading by an alumnus of the theatre’s prestigious Young Playwrights Festival competition. All events are free and, unless otherwise noted, open to the public.
