FIVES New Play Festival

When: Thu., June 25, 7-9 p.m., Fri., June 26, 7-9 p.m. and Sat., June 27, 2-4 & 7-9 p.m. 2015

Thanks to places like the Millibo Art Theatre and the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, lots of venues are working to nurture playwrights and bring audiences into the process, and you can add Black Box Theatre (1367 Pecan St., to the list. Its FIVES New Play Festival will stage six short plays — that would be five winning pieces, plus a runner-up — at 7 p.m. each night through Saturday (which also includes a 2 p.m. matinee). Expect comedies and dramas at 10 to 20 minutes each. FIVES playwrights come from as far away as New Zealand, but those familiar with the theater community here will recognize directors from other companies like Funky Little Theater Company and Springs Ensemble Theatre. Tickets are $10, and $5 for military, students and seniors; add $2 if bought at the door. — Edie Adelstein
