The New Black Fest was founded in 2010 with a mission to develop and support new work among black artists. In light of the police shootings of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri and John Crawford III in Beavercreek, Ohio, among others, The NBF commissioned seven emerging black playwrights to write monologues that explore their feelings about the well-being of black people in a culture of institutional profiling. The result is a raw, honest collection of stories that are vital for all of us to focus our spotlight on.

The New Black Fest’s Hands Up contains mature language as well as content about assault which may be triggering to some people. Recommend Age: 18+.

Welcome to the Renaissance, where the Black Plague has ceded power to the Puritans, codpieces are the latest fashion trend, and the biggest celebrity in England is a playwright named William Shakespeare. In the midst of all this excitement, brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are trying to keep their acting company afloat. In a desperate attempt to out-Bard the Bard, Nick consults with a soothsayer, who informs him that the future of theatre involves acting, singing, and dancing -- sometimes all at once! As the Bottom brothers strive to write the world’s very first “musical”, they find themselves caught in a bitter battle with the Bard and the play's the thing. Something Rotten! is a hysterical, joyous celebration of everything you love about Broadway.
