New York's Newest Theatre Festival Announces it's 2017 Lineup

May 17, 2017

 

The Broadway Bound Theatre Festival (BBTF), "NYC’s Newest Theatre Festival," today announced what they are describing as "curated new works by exceptional playwrights in a community-building, joyous celebration of staged theatre."

 

BBTF announced that its mission in its inaugural year is to reclaim the term 'theatre festival’. They have expanded the theatre festival definition by working very closely with their writers in producing their plays, with an end focus of giving audiences a complete New York theatre experience for an affordable price.

 

BBTF has nurtured and educated their participants to develop their work for the bigger stage, with a goal of becoming a launching pad for regional, Off- Broadway and Broadway transfers. BBTF invites you to be a part of their exciting inaugural year and go and see some amazing new works at the Theater at the 14th St. Y in the East Village.

 

Performances run July 30 through August 20, 2017. Below is a lineup of their 2017 participants.

 

BROADWAY BOUND THEATRE FESTIVAL 2017 (alphabetical order)

 

2 YEARS OF ETERNAL JOY

After a young woman is diagnosed with cancer, she and her fiancé find their relationship tested by the hidden resentments the illness brings out in her family.

 

ADAM AND BRIAN

Following a brutal attack by three strangers, a New York City gay couple finds themselves unrecognizable to each other as they deal with the physical and emotional damage that threatens to destroy their relationship.

 

BEDLAM

While in combat, a young Marine and his unit cope with the fallout of a fellow soldier's suicide, forcing him to face his own battle with depression. 

 

CONVICTED

While on community service, an intern at an equal rights coalition in NYC kidnaps a young boy he believes is being abused by his fundamentalist mother.

 

IMAGE

When a red-hot pop star suffers a heroin overdose, her opportunistic publicist sends a shark-like saleswoman to secure an exclusive contract from her mother, resulting in a battle of wills that questions the definitions of success, loyalty and humanity.

 

IN PURSUIT OF PEACE

When Junior shows up unexpectedly at his father's house, the two men are forced to confront their distant past and all that's been left in its wake. 

 

IN THE ROOM, WAITING

Hospital waiting rooms are usually reserved for an ominous monotony. This one is anything but that. As a young couple awaits the results of a pregnancy evaluation, this play takes a moving and comical look at fate, choice and compassion.

 

KEYS

In a vast chamber filled with keys, a destitute Heroina fends off rivals, con artists, guards and judges while searching for the one key that will unlock the door to Paradise.

 

MINE

When a group of miners are trapped after an explosion, a paralegal from the mining company’s law firm is sent on a journey from Manhattan to West Virginia and back again, questioning herself and the values of the world around her.

 

MUST WIN

A Texas high school football coach, facing enormous pressure to win at all costs, must decide what’s more important: his ethics or his job. 

 

OUT THERE

Inspired by true events, the search for change is deftly told through three interconnected stories of the Cuban fight for freedom over the last 60 years. 

 

PATRIOTS, OR THE HITLER QUESTION

In this corner: Paul, the Speaker of the House. In that corner: Joshua, the unlikeliest of assassins. S**t’s about to get “bigly.”

 

POOR BOYS’ CHORUS

A daring trick by a mysterious illusionist at the summer carnival inspires a rich girl to convince an orphan boy to break all of the town’s rules. The Poor Boys’ Chorus proudly presents a tale so tragically romantic it’ll take your breath away. Literally.

 

RUNNING FOR MY LIFE

Jay Chas pieces together the fragments of his life, family and relationship using running as his escape, his nemesis and ultimately, his peacemaker. 

 

SKELETONS 

When a crisis forces a family back together, each member's dysfunctional Skeleton has to share the same cramped closet and their social skills are clearly lacking. Long buried resentments and painful secrets are exposed.

 

SMALL TOWN CONFESSIONS

Come meet the colorful, diverse citizens of Anitola Parish, a town built on Jesus, Wal-Mart and glittery nail polish!

 

SNOW WHITE PADDED ROOM

After a tragic car crash wipes out her memories of the last 10 years, a wife wakes up in a hospital room searching for answers as she is unwittingly observed through a two-way mirror by her husband and her doctor.

 

SYMPATHY IN C

Like a musical ensemble, six voices intertwine to expose the emotional and physical assault of cancer and terrorism - both as an attack on the individual and our social body.

 

THE AMERICAN DREAM

In a Tucson, Arizona safe house, a young illegal immigrant and her merciless human smuggler engage in a battle of wills as they await a phone call of final payment from her husband, which may or may not come.
