Barnyard Theatre will present a Night of New Short Plays from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday in the Pence Gallery Courtyard, 212 D St. in downtown Davis.
Every summer, Barnyard Theatre’s Nights of New Plays Festival introduces new works to the community. This summer, Barnyard joins the Second Friday ArtAbout by presenting an evening of readings of short plays. The event is free, and light refreshments will be provided.
Downtown visitors are invited to stop by at any point in the evening. A new play will be presented every 15 minutes, including selections from “Hatcher Makes a Salad,” by local playwright Briandaniel Oglesby; “Cassandra Approaches,” by John Malin, a play about the end of the world; and “Pirates of the Condominium,” by Rob Rinow, a fable for modern times about a pregnant woman who takes over her neighbor’s condo with a bulldozer.
The evening also will include a sneak peek at Barnyard’s summer mainstage production, “She Creatures,” written by Sarah Saltwick and directed by Camille Beaumont, which will be presented July 19 to Aug. 3.
