New Works Festival featuring: Slaymaker by Bethany Dickens Assaf

Since its inception in 2020, The Hippodrome Theatre’s annual New Works Festival has been a beacon for narrative voices in Florida, nurturing the development of plays in both traditional and experimental forms. This festival serves as a vibrant mosaic, reflecting the rich tapestry of artists in Florida and their compelling stories, which offer a unique perspective on the American experience.

The festival champions innovation, embracing audacious and thought-provoking content, formats, and styles. This year’s lineup features two captivating plays: The Art of Floating by Jennifer A. Kokai and Slaymaker by Bethany Dickens Assaf

by Bethany Dickens Assaf
Jay and Meghan both agree: ‘Slaymaker’ is the badassest surname for anyone ever – especially a Magic The Gathering champion (or a champion in the making). But if Meghan is divorcing Jay and writing whiny articles about how tough it is to be a girl in Magic, then is she really entitled to keep using it? Legalities aside, the two decide to resolve their differences through a Magic tournament. If she wins, Meghan gets to keep ‘Slaymaker.’ But if Jay beats her…will anything ever change?
