With a foundation in the creations of Tech Laureate Award winners (recognized by The Tech Museum) whose works serve as an exemplary platform for helping humankind to advance through technological innovation, this year's student playwright selections include short pieces inspired by the progressive inventions of the Tech Laureates. This years' Foothill New Works Festival includes six short plays ranging in style from realism to farce to surrealism both comedic and dramatic. These works address technological innovations ranging from developing remarkable building materials to instant HIV test results. The Foothill New Works Festival is dedicated to developing and promoting the world premiere work of upcoming playwrights as well as providing opportunities for developing directors, actors and designers to further their advance their experiences.
