Tickets are now on sale for the ArkType Festival of New Works!

Join us for 7 days of brand new work from students, faculty, and community playwrights! 

 

Theatre for One

Conceived by Artistic Director Christine Jones, Theatre for One is a mobile state-of-the-art performance space for one actor and one audience member. Featuring eight new works by a mixture of University of Arkansas Creative Writing and Theatre faculty and acclaimed American playwrights, these ‘micro-plays’ will last 3 to 5 minutes each with multiple works showcased during each performance time.

A Hamlet: West of Why by John Walch
A dark comedy set in the not-too-distant future, a group of young actors tour a 59-minute version of Hamlet across a dystopian American Southwest.

Latin/x Theatre Project
Incorporating rap, music, comedy, and drama, this exciting group of Northwest Arkansas theatre artists, now in their second season, reveals insights about what it means to be Latino in America today.

(I)sland T(rap) by Austin Dean Ashford
A one person Hip Hop Dramedy Mash up about Black Ulysses on an Odyssey of self discovery told through an interwoven narrative of music, poetry and animals.

The Poodle Trainer by Meghan McEnery
Welcome to the circus—where the improbable meets the serendipitous and where two lost souls bond over their fascination with the poodle act.

Rise by Paul McInnis
In the vein of Blaxploitation crime films of the seventies, the play journeys the life of Nefertiti Green and the collective community of St. Marie.

Ten Minute Plays
Original short works written and performed by University of Arkansas undergraduate students.

When you purchase a ticket for one of our three full length productions, you receive entry to any event directly preceding or following that performance as well.
