Humana Festival 2014: The Complete Plays brings together all nine scripts from the 2014 Humana Festival of New American Plays, the 38th cycle of world premiere productions staged at Actors Theatre of Louisville. This unique compilation features a remarkable array of work by some of the most exciting voices in the American theatre, from the crisis of faith that ripples through a church after its pastor makes a startling announcement (The Christians), to the tremendous loss felt after a young man is killed in a senseless act of violence in his inner city neighborhood (brownsville song [b-side for tray]), to the tricky shifts in dynamics that occur in a friendship and a marriage when sudden wealth comes into play (Partners).

  • Published Reviews

    "Theater is fundamentally a storytelling medium, and at the 38th annual Humana Festival of New American Plays, the manner in which tales are told -- be they fantastical, historical or ripped from the headlines -- became a theme in the five full-length plays on offer."

    The New York Times

    "The Humana Festival is a destination for serious theatergoers as well as theater professionals from across the nation and around the world who journey to this onstage mecca for a shot of creativity -- like a dose of Red Bull after a long, wearying winter."

    Cincinnati Citybeat

    "The festival is the crossroads of the not-for-profit American theater... Humana Festival alumni are themselves a human crossroads of the American theater."

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
