.Bay Area Playwrights Festival Streams

Held online this year, the 2021 Bay Area Playwrights Festival presents five bold new voices in stage writing. While this week’s arts feature focuses on Tiger Beat (see page 15 for more), the festivals other entries are just as interesting, like Human Museum by Bay Area stage/game writer Miyoko Conley, in which the robots running a museum of human artifacts get a surprising new take on human life one hundred years after we go extinct, or Sam Hamashima’s Supposed Home, which uses anime as a lens to explore Japanese internment in WWII. Both premiere this week and run again the following.
