Humana Festival 2008 Report: Day #2

I have to make this quick for now...I'm back at the hotel and fading fast.
The day was jam-packed with 4 plays and lots of discussion about funding for new-play development in this country. There was a party at a bar called PROOF after the last show so we had time to mingle with other representatives from theatres across the US.

We saw 4 plays today including Becky Shaw by Gina Gionfriddo which had an amazing script, my favorite of the festival...Great Falls by Lee Blessing was another standout. Another one of today's four was Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom by Jennifer Haley, which dealt with teenagers and their addiction to an online horror video game at the expense of their relationships with their parents and you can see the the subject matter of this festival is very diverse.

One more show and a great discussion on deck for tomorrow, Adam Rapp is one of the panelists.

I may have to wrap up when we get back...we go straight to the airport after the last show.
Thanks for joining us at Humana!
