A team of young theater artists -- two producers, four directors, eight writers and 25 actors, many of them making their New York City debut -- all come together for this year's New Artist's Festival sharing works that convey all sides of one theme: family. Showing on different nights, you can see two full-length plays -- David Lindsay-Abaire's Pulitzer Prize-winning The Rabbit Hole about loss and Carlos Murillo's Dark Play, or Stories for Boys about a teenage boy's fictional internet identity -- plus seven new short works written for the festival.

“Wit, humor and fantasy. Hilarious.” —Clive Barnes, New York Times
By Israel Horovitz
Directed by Edith O’ Hara*
Ever wait in line?
What are you waiting for?
Who are these other people?
Are they your friends? Are they your enemies?
Is someone trying to cheat you? Seduce you? Cut ahead?
Who can you trust?
Line, Israel Horovitz’s classic, existential, dark comedy explores these questions in this biting, absurdist allegory, that perfectly satirizes the now-timeless theme of America’s constant desire and struggle to be in first place.
Line was Horovitz’s first play produced. Translated into over 35 languages, Line has become a landmark of New York’s theater scene as NYC’s longest-running play … 37 years at our theatre!
Stage and screen legends Chazz Palminteri, Richard Dreyfuss, and John Cazale all stood in Line during the show’s historic run. Come and experience this Greenwich Village classic, as relevant now as when it opened at our theatre in 1974.
