Join Theatre Squared this year as they take the Arkansas New Play Festival to the virtual stage. This summer and fall will feature a series of trail-blazing new plays with additional viewing opportunities for the performances, intimate conversations between the playwrights, directors, and cast as well as opportunities to share your own thoughts.

The second performance in the Arkansas New Play Festival series, The Interrogator, is a WWII thriller based on transcripts of the actual interrogations carried out at Fort Hunt, a top-secret prisoner of war camp code-named P.O. BOX 1142. This reading premieres August 7 and will be offered nationwide for a suggested donation to support the work. The reading will be followed by a conversation with the creative team. Encore streaming is available through August 11. Full details are available at playarkansas.com.

“The Interrogator is not only gripping storytelling—but also deeply resonant with our society today,” said T2 Artistic Director Robert Ford. “Opening space to share these works in progress—and supporting playwrights as they prepare these brilliant new works for their world premieres—sets the stage for an exciting return to live performances.”

Keep an eye out for these upcoming titles to premiere later this year:

  • Russian Troll Farm: A Workplace Comedy by Sara Gancher, directed by Jared Mezzochi 
  • Weightless, by the Kilbanes, directed by Tamilla Woodard
  • Heroes & Monsters, by the LatinX Theatre Project
