FEBRUARY 16th – MARCH 16th, 2011
Moving Arts presents “LIGATURE: An Evening of 5 Short Plays” as part of their 16th Annual Premiere One-Act Festival. These premiere plays (3 World Premieres, 2 West Coast Premieres) explore the ties that bind us and the decisions we make to change our lives. Some comedic, some tragic; all five plays are bold and express an emerging playwright’s unique theatrical voice.
