Experimental Theater at UNM
13th Annual Words Afire! Festival
The costumes have been hemmed, the stages built, the props have been set and reset again. All the lines have been fumbled and are now gracefully recovered. The graduating MFAs of the UNM Experimental Theatre department's Dramatic Writing program have pulled the curtain again. Words Afire! is the program’s annual send-off for graduate students in the Theatre Department, and for the graduating playwrights, it is now their turn to sit in the audience and watch their works come to life.
