Emerson Stage

X Dance and NewFest New Works Festival

The NewFest New Works Festival is a month-long celebration of the creativity of Emerson students.

The Rod Parker Playwriting Award and NewFest are both funded by the generous support of Rod Parker ’51. Mr. Parker wrote his first play while an undergraduate at Emerson College, and in 1991 made the Playwrights' Festival possible by creating an endowment to fund fellowships for student playwrights and support the first productions of their work.
