The New Works Festival is a long standing UTS tradition of undergraduate written work. The Festival highlights not only workshopping new scripts, but putting new work on its feet, and giving undergrads opportunities they can't find elsewhere. All three plays featured will have been written by, directed by, and performed by undergraduates in our community. 

The show should last approximately 90 minutes, and is completely free! No ticket sales - just show up. Donations will be accepted at the door.
