Fairfield University student theatre troupe presents staged readings of four plays in New Works Festival


Theatre Fairfield, Fairfield University's student theatre company, will present its New Works Festival on Friday, Feb. 7 and Saturday, Feb. 8 at 8 p.m. Both performances will take place in the PepsiCo Theatre at Fairfield University.

The festival is a chance for students to present a staged reading of works they've written. Director Kent Brown, adjunct professor of English, will take the troupe through four plays: "Weaving" by Tina M. Minerva of New Hyde Park, N.Y.; "A Cow in the Muck" by Bob McGee of Marshfield, Mass.; "The Audition" by Paul John Desena of Cheshire, Conn.; and "37 Gallons of Milk" by Cait Davis of Woodbury, Conn.

Davis' play features a grown woman having an amusing dinner with her parents, while "A Cow in the Muck" considers two sons and their relationship with their father.
