Annex Theatre Capitol Hill
Aug. 4-19 2015
Who knows what this will actually turn out to be like, but this new, all-young, all-female short works festival has some promising names attached to it: Courtney Meaker, L. Nicol Cabe, Amy Escobar, and former ace Stranger intern Catherine Blake Smith. The Zig Zag festival has also adopted a wise-sounding conceit: Each of the six writer/directors will write one play, direct another play, and serve as a critical outside eye on a third. We could all use someone to save us from ourselves.
