UCSD playwrights offer five new productions

The Baldwin New Play Festival at UCSD 2010 features five world premiere productions by the university’s MFA playwrights — directed, acted, stage managed and designed by its nationally-acclaimed MFA companies. It runs through April 24.

The plays take on themes ranging from the legacy of slavery for one African-American family to what it means to be an American trying to do a good in a third world nation. They explore the complexity of finding justice in an imperfect world and the redemptive powers of making art.
