The Boston New Works Festival is accepting submissions for BNWF2024!

Moonbox Productions pivoted from normal operations in 2020 during the COVID shutdown to create the Boston New Works Festival . This festival has been an outstanding success– bringing LOCAL artists together to celebrate LOCAL playwrights and LOCAL performers each June at the Boston Center for the Arts and the Calderwood Pavilion. A request for proposals went out in the fall of 2020 and a diverse panel of judges choose eleven submissions that will be workshopped over the coming year.  We continue this work now entering our THIRD FESTIVAL YEAR!
