2019 Ground and Field Theater Festival


The third annual Ground and Field Theatre Festival (GFTF), “Play on the Brink,” spotlights new plays and musicals written by local, national and international playwrights and composers, including Broadway veterans. The main performances are Sept. 26–Oct. 5, 2019 on the UC Davis campus and in community venues.

The UC Davis College of Letters and Science’s Department of Theatre and Dance produces the festival with the Theatre and Dance Ensemble and a new collaboration with Bike City Theatre Company.

During a month-long intensive, artists develop new works under the guidance of the festival’s co-artistic directors: Broadway veteran Mindy Cooper and award-winning director/producers Tom Burmester, Lisa Quoresimo and Danika Sudik. A unique collaboration among scholars, guest artists and a student-led ensemble, the festival nurtures the playwright’s vision while developing narratives around environmental, social and economic sustainability.
