Notes:
the Mirror Repertory Company presents the Young Mirror's No Boundaries Play Festival. the following description is from the show's press release: "Too often, new writers Are encouraged to shrink their ideas down in order to get their plays produced. Two And three character scripts with one setting Are the norm. Mirror Repertory Company believes that in order to create extraordinary Art, writers must work without limits. they have started the No Boundaries Festival, which invited writers to write whatever they wanted; letting Mirror Rep worry About solving the technical problems."
