ReOrient Festival of Short Plays

Friday, October 13, 2023 8:00 PM - Saturday, November 4, 2023 3:00 PM (PDT)


ReOrient 2023 Festival of Short Plays Six short plays. One unforgettable evening. Think you know the Middle East? Think again! An endless wait in an immigration line elicits a not-so-pretty stream of consciousness. Former rivals reunite after 20 years, and a surprising twist unfolds. A comic farce of a play-within-a-play-within-a-play pushes the writer to battle over who controls the narrative. A pile of dead bodies sits untouched in the middle of an office space. A young woman sails from Armenia to Ellis Island for an inconvenient marriage. A couple negotiates at San Francisco’s hottest new Couples Therapy practice. This year’s ReOrient offers a diverse lineup of unexpected and boundary-pushing plays. Nowhere else you will see such a global mix of stories and styles on one stage in one evening!
