    Teatro Vivo is proud to present the 2021 Austin Latinx New Play Festival in collaboration with Scriptworks.

    The 2021 Austin Latinx New Play Festival (ALNPF), presented in collaboration with ScriptWorks, will take place on a digital platform May 13 to May 15, 2021.

    Now in its ninth year, the ALNPF provides an opportunity for playwrights to hear, see, and receive feedback on their original work. The festival brings each playwright together with a dramaturg, director, and actors to bring their play to life as a staged reading in front of an audience (online this year due to COVID).

    Playwrights of the selected pieces will collaborate with a dramaturg and directors hired by Teatro Vivo and Scriptworks to work on their plays and then present them with a facilitated talk back on zoom with the audience immediately following the public reading.
