Packed with plays from across the nation and the world, the theme of this series is “current zeitgeist,” with each of the plays focusing on the defining spirit in today’s world. The plays will vary from solo shows to original one-act comedies, a special halfway-to-Christmas treat and more.

The festival will run through June 25. In addition to the plays being featured each week, the festival will also include MAINcast, an in-depth look at each of the productions with the director and cast members. Theatrical performances will take place every Friday at 7 p.m. on the City’s YouTube page and on The MAIN’s Facebook page.

All of the shows are free, and the community is invited to support and partake in the thrill of live theatre from the comfort of home.

Among the plays featured are “Aloha Attire,” “Beethoven and Misfortune Cookies,“ “Connie,” “10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse” and ”A Very COVID Christmas Carol.”
