A short play festival curated by


Nicolas Shannon Savard


We’re living in unprecedented times, challenged by convergent epidemics of racial injustice, economic hardship, the proliferation of misinformation, and the coronavirus itself. In all this, we are buoyed more than ever by people who salvage beauty from the ugliness, find laughter in the tears. Curated by Nicolas Shannon Savard, Joy. Laughter. Rage. brings together three short new works about mess, struggle, and ultimately, survival.
