NuAFrikan Theatre NuWorks supports the development and production of works by emerging playwrights through playwriting mentorships, staged readings, administrative, marketing, and financial support for the production of new plays. Artistic Director Marcus Dargan stated, “As a company of artists, we are driven by our desire to see theatre in our communities that is relevant, innovative, refreshing, insightful, electrifying, inspirational, and of great artistry. NuWorks was developed in order to promote the artistic visions of talented artists and provide a foundation for them to hone and present their craft in a professional and nurturing environment.”
