UTNT (UT New Theatre) presents newly developed works from playwrights of Texas Theatre and Dance and Michener Center for Writers. Now in its 11th season, this showcase exists as an incubator for new work, with many continuing on to be professionally produced across the country.

Plays will include:

  • Loverboy by Drew Paryzer (Directed by Jess Shoemaker) - Loverboy finally returns home. His Mom is now running an Airbnb out of his childhood bedroom. Loverboy's youth is gone, but there are still many things to be raised within the walls of this strangely powerful room. (Performances: April 12, 14, and 18 at 7:30 pm and April 21 at 2 pm)
  • MotherWitch by Travis Tate (Directed by Alice Stanley) - Nights before Darla's 21st birthday, she is told of The Belleford women's great power that she will inherit. Darla's girlfriend is a tad angry with her. Oh, and the family cat, Winston has started talking. While studying her induction into the family coven, Sherry, Darla's grandmother, falls sick. Darla must negotiate her family's legacy, her power, and the love of her life...all before she's able to drink. (Performances: April 13, 19, and 21 at 7:30 pm and April 15 at 2 pm)
  • Milton, MI by Paz Pardo (Directed by Adam L. Sussman) Leah's got writer's block, Amber's got ambition, Jake's got it all. Leah and Jake were once up-and-coming, hot-shot poets. Now Leah's working admin as Jake's career skyrockets, and slugs are eating the foundation of their house. When fresh-faced Amber shows up, it's only a matter of time before things get sticky. A play about threesomes, poetry and the failure to communicate. (Performances: April 17, 20 at 7:30 pm and April 14, 22 at 2 pm)
