Arkansas's premier celebration of new works for the american stage

Join us for two full weekends of performances of trail-blazing new plays, with free events and local craft beer on tap. You’re invited to sit in for the performances and for an intimate conversation with the playwright and cast—and help shape new works from the ground up.

Performances will be held in the Studio Theatre at Nadine Baum Studios, The Record,  The Preacher's Son, and at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.

New Play Passes, granting entry to all events, are on sale now for $50. Reserve your passes by calling Tickets Northwest Arkansas at (479) 443-5600. Seating is very limited.



Patrons attending performances in Fayetteville can celebrate the craft of playwriting with a free craft beer in hand. Enjoy a complimentary selection of on-tap new releases from the fast-growing local Northwest Arkansas beer scene before the show and during post-show conversations with the playwright, director and cast.
