Humana Festival 2008: The Complete Plays brings together all eleven scripts from the 2008 Humana Festival of New American Plays, the 32nd annual cycle of world premiere productions staged at Actors Theatre of Louisville. The seven full-length plays and four ten-minute plays represent an exceptional array of work by some of the most exciting new voices in American theater -- from a scathing comedy about a blind date gone awry (Becky Shaw); to a documentary drama about the evangelical phenomenon in Colorado Springs (This Beautiful City); to a suburban street being undermined by zombies from a video game (Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom). Humana Festival 2008: The Complete Plays features a diverse selection of theatrical works that challenge and captivate audiences through movement, song, and bold explorations of what it means to be human.

Includes the plays All Hail Hurricane Gordo by Carly Mensch, Becky Shaw by Gina Gionfriddo, Dead Right by Elaine Jarvik, Game On by Zakiyyah Alexander, Rolin Jones, Jon Spurney, Alice Tuan, Daryl Watson, Marisa Wegrzyn, and Ken Weitzman, Great Falls by Lee Blessing, In Paris You Will Find Many Baguettes but Only One True Love by Michael Lew, Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom by Jennifer Haley, One Short Sleepe by Naomi Wallace, the break/s by Marc Bamuthi Joseph, This Beautiful City by Steven Cosson, Michael Friedman, and Jim Lewis, Tongue, Tied by M. Thomas Cooper"
