New Visions 2018

Three plays highlight the work of this year’s graduating MFA directors and actors

by José Rivera
directed by Sarah Young

Our first play of the 2018 New Visions Festival, Sueño is directed by third-year MFA student Sarah Young. Sueño is Obie Award-winning playwright José Rivera's translation and adaptation of Calderón de la Barca's classic Life Is a Dream. Set in 1635, this metaphysical drama—renowned as one of the jewels of the Spanish Golden Age—Sueño follows the life of young Prince Segismundo, heir to the Spanish throne, who is imprisoned at birth when astrologers predict that his reign as king will result in the country's ruin.

Roberto Zucco 
by Bernard-Marie Koltés

The third and final play in the 2018 New Visions Festival is directed by Joey Rizzolo. Roberto Zucco was the last play by legendary French writer Bernard-Marie Koltès, "a pioneer of a wholly new style of dramatic writing" (The Times). In a series of poetic, fast-moving scenes, Koltès takes his titular hero on a mythical journey through a landscape of strange and violent beauty.
