Meet a “new voice”
SPARC’s New Voices for the Theatre celebrates 27 years this summer. The Playwright-in-Residence is EM (Ellen) Lewis, who was also here in 2012. Out of the 150+ student plays that were submitted, 8 are chosen to be staged. This includes one by Daniel Kunkel, who is also an actor (seen locally in 5th Wall’s Human Terrain and Cadence’s The Flick). He’s also been a member of the 4th Wall Student Leadership Forum, sponsored by VaRep & Cadence’s for 2 years. The Festival of New Works will feature the 8 productions on 7/8 & 9 at VCU’s Shafer Street Theatre.
