"Words, words, words."

Discover a New Play


Discover a new play when playwrights spend a week at the Festival and our actors present the plays as staged readings or workshops, followed by an instructive discussion between the playwright, actors, and audience.

Words Cubed is the Utah Shakespeare Festival's new-play program that seeks to nurture and develop openly submitted and commissioned-based plays by providing a professionally supported platform for readings, workshops, and fully realized productions as part of an ongoing commitment to create a diverse body of work.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the Ticket Office, online, or at the door.

All shows are in the Randall L. Jones Theatre and begin at 9:30 a.m.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The plays in this series are written for contemporary adult audiences, and some plays may contain themes and language not appropriate for children and that some may find offensive. Check the content advisories for each new play for more information.
