for our Sixth Annual New Works Festival, 3GT Celebrates
RADICAL HOPE & THE NEW RESISTANCE
Radical Hope is what drives all of us at 3GT to continue throwing ourselves passionately into making theater that will move and engage you. Our 2017 New Works Festival includes ten days of original theatrical events that explore the need for artists to never let go of hope, despite what political forces surround us.
When the always-prophetic Ursula LeGuin was honored with he National Book Foundation’s Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters in 2014, she foresaw our future as artists today:
Hard times are coming, when we’ll be wanting the voices of writers who can see alternatives to how we live now, can see through our fear-stricken society and its obsessive technologies to other ways of being, and even imagine real grounds for hope. We’ll need writers who can remember freedom – poets, visionaries – realists of a larger reality.
