First Flight Festival 2018 is the 4th annual festival of new short plays created by Angels Play Writing Collective.  Member playwrights came together last fall to decide the rules for the upcoming 2018 Festival, and it was decided that the only unifying theme for 2018 would be that all plays were under 20 minutes. 

The 2018 Festival premieres 22 new short plays for youth and adult performers.  

Interesting fact this year - 5 playwrights have multiple scripts in the festival. 

Musician Jeramie Beahm is back with his original music and Flight C's plays are performed by students from the Malcolm Nebraska public school system.

Flights A & B - Please be advised that there are adult themes such as mental illness; "coming out" (from a teen's point of view); clinical language asking about HIV transmission; a 4 letter word or two; and the question "does the tooth fairy really exist?"

In Flight C - Brian Bornstein's play '9 Seconds' looks at friendship and suicide (from a teen's point of view).

IF YOU ARE PURCHASING A PASS - SELECT THE FIRST performance you'd like to attend.  At the time of the purchase you will have an option to list the other dates you wish to choose.
