Covid-19 has hit New York City and the entire city is under quarantine. Nathaniel has decided to drag his best friend Ixchel out of bed to go on an adventure. When the two investigate a strange phenomenon in Ixchel’s basement, they are transported to a world that affords them both the chance to overcome the past and step into the future. RED RAINBOW is a predominantemente English-language adventure for 2020 and beyond.
The amazing playwright of this year’s New Works Lab is Azure D. Osborne-Lee (he/they).
Azure is a multi-award-winning Black queer theatre maker from south of the Mason-Dixon Line. He is a Kilroys List 2020 playwright, recipient of Parity Productions’ 2018 Annual Commission, Winner of Downtown Urban Arts Festival’s 2018 Best Play Award, and the 2015 Mario Fratti-Fred Newman Political Play Contest. Azure’s full-length play “Crooked Parts” will be published in the forthcoming anthology The Methuen Drama Book of Trans Plays. His full-length play “Mirrors” received its world premiere, produced by Parity Productions, at Next Door at New York Theatre Workshop February 29-March 22, 2020. Unfortunately, this production closed early on March 12, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. azureosbornelee.com
