Azuka Theatre has announced it will produce the world premier of Moon Cave by Douglas Williams, Foundry playwright and Azuka Playwright-in-Residence, in its 2014-2015 season.
The season also includes The (curious case of the) Watson Intelligence by Madeleine George and Speech and Debate by Stephen Karam.
Azuka Theatre is committed to giving voice to people whose stories go unheard. Since 1999, Azuka has produced 13 world premiers and 13 Philadelphia premiers, including last season’s Skin & Bone by Foundry founder Jacqueline Goldfinger, who is also an Azuka Playwright-in-Residence.
