Pen-to-Paper Play Festival

Normal Ave hit its one-year anniversary and what an exciting year it has been! 

We spent the year examining human nature, embracing our individual differences, and coming together to challenge our perspective of what it means to be “normal”. With this in mind, Normal Ave was proud to launch our New Works Program with the Pen to Paper Play Festival. Being an artist in New York, you are gifted with an array of source material: the many different lives that coexist on 13 miles of an island. Normal Ave wants to tell the stories of the “huddled masses, yearning to breathe free”. We aim to create a stage for up-and-coming playwrights to discover their voice, leave no stone unturned, and explore truly what “Redefining Normal” means.
