The New Voices Project
The New Voices Project was founded in July of 2012 as a reaction to the absence of new works in mainstream theatre. It costs a lot of money to rent space, pay artistic staff, market and put up a new work. The playwright is forced to give over their piece and make changes based on investors and not the structure or integrity of the play. The New Voices Project allows the playwright to give over their work to a director and a company of actors and see the play they have written brought to life. In this setting the playwright is able to work out the kinks in their material, and allow other artists to help develop the piece. Production values vary from staged readings to fully mounted productions. For more information or to submit your work please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Encryption, a Neo-Noir for the 21st Century introduces us to Feehan, a CIA agent tasked with finding the elusive master crypter responsible for an anonymous online currency used by criminals known only as, Sunanokubi. She enlists Lydie, a green CIA crypter, and together they go undercover to reveal Sunanokubi’s true identity. As the present grows more complex, Feehan's past becomes more present, until the two collide and everyone’s true identity is – or isn’t – revealed.
