2014 program set for Rattlestick’s second annual Theater:Village Festival | E Pluribus features four plays about America’s diversity

Here comes year two of New York’s newest theater festival.

After a banner first year featuring Lucy Thurber, Rattlestick Playwrights Theater’s ambitious and exciting Theater:Village Festival is back for more. For 2014, the festival has moved from August to September.

“Theater:Village presents annually a series of new plays in several prominent West Village theater, based around one playwright or common theme. The goal is to involve the collaboration of many producing partners, deepening community engagements and audience experiences. Theater:Village signifies a major shift in the ways theaters work. It challenges the assumptions that we must cut back and compete more fiercely with each other in order to survive as nonprofit arts institutions, and promotes collaboration and community-conscious programming to expose emerging audiences to essential new work they would not otherwise be able to see.”
