Boston Court’s New Play Reading Festival presents readings of exciting new works in progress that are in keeping with Boston Court’s mission, which urges artists to fearlessly and passionately pursue their unique voice and vision. Play selection encompasses a wide variety of genres, with a special emphasis on works, which are inherently theatrical, textually rich, and visually arresting.

Aura Bloom can’t sleep. She’s consumed with grief over our ever-warming planet and in despair over recent social/political events. So, when Aura seduces an unsuspecting Census Worker and claims he’s impregnated her, it’s no wonder that her husband, Billy, thinks she’s gone over the edge. In the months that follow, Aura prepares to birth an extinction-level plague: Mother Earth’s final punishment for mankind’s carelessness. A play about crickets, politics, sex, unemployment, and… oh yeah, the end of the world.
Night Dust Journey
By Mickey Birnbaum
Directed by Jessica Kubzansky
Amy is a nuclear mitigation technician on assignment in Kazakhstan. Her husband Tom sells high-end real estate. As their cities, their jobs, and their marriage implode, their neglected teenage daughter Libby embarks on an unlikely love affair with the theater. Full of mystical encounters, living buildings, impossible journeys, and comic twists, Night Dust Journey wonders what place the American dream and the American family might still have in an irradiated, unstable, post-truth world.
