New Ground Theatre Festival

Roe Green, Honorary Producer bio

Cleveland Play House is pleased to announce the return of the New Ground Theatre Festival (NGTF) in person!

NGTF is a celebration of Cleveland-inspired new play development at Cleveland Play House. This season's festival features play excerpts written by three groundbreaking playwrights commissioned through the Roe Green Fund for New American Plays: Vichet Chum, Jessica Dickey, and Charly Evon Simpson.

NGTF provides audiences with the opportunity to meet the three playwrights and get a preview of their plays in progress. Playwrights will dialogue with special guests and instrumental collaborators from Cleveland and beyond, offering a deeper look into the worlds of the newly commissioned plays, as well as the stories and people that inspired them. Additionally, CPH is thrilled to unveil an interactive component of Mapping New Ground, which can be experienced virtually or in person.
