100 years hence in a fundamentalist society, Jacob Bergson is thrown into a musty prison, accused of writing The Believer’s Diary—a book that is sparking a revolution.  He maintains his innocence, as his cellmate provokes him, the powers that be threaten, and a young, sad guard tries to figure him out.  Prayer will challenge your ideas about the nature of morality through one man’s search for justice and redemption.  Prayer played to sold-out houses at the 2008 New York City Fringe festival. This will be its first full scale production.

*Jonathan’s play, The Beast in My Pants, was featured as a part of Nouveau 47’s inaugural New Works/New Voices Festival,

Using the joint stock process, Nouveau 47 will be embarking on a journey talking to teachers, parents, students and politicians as we dive into a socially conscious experiment in collective creation.  Part Greek tragedy, part documentary style reenactment, Education:20/20 is digging into the state of education.

Night.  Arizona, on the border between Mexico and the United States of America. When a young man joins a lone minuteman on weekly patrol, words fly and a game of questions begins over who represents the “real America”and who decides where the line in the sand is drawn.  COYOTE is an award-winning play by Kevin Kautzman that casts light on one of the darkest corners of recent history: the uncertain line between the United States and its neighbor to the south.

Coyote was written with the support of a Jerome Fellowship from the Playwrights’ Center in Minneapolis.  A group of selectors and the finalist judge, John Godber, awarded Coyote this year’s International Student Playscript Competition prize.  In April, Coyote received a reading at the National Student Drama Festival in Scarborough, UK, directed by Phil Mann.  Coyote was featured at Nouveau 47’s inaugural New Works/New Voices Festival. This will be its first full scale production.
