YES Festival returns with three world premieres

Someone is behind the gruesome murder of dead billionaire Marcus Kane in “Heart Attack with a Knife” and you can witness the murder mystery solved on stage at the 16th biennial Year-End-Series Festival of New Plays, which opens today in Patricia Corbett and Robert & Rosemary Stauss Theatres in the Fine Arts Center.

“Heart Attack” by Oded Gross and directed by Ken Jones, kicks off the festival that will feature three never-before-seen productions. The world premiere will also feature “Spake” by David L. Williams, directed by Mike King and “Furbelow” by J. Stephen Brantley, directed by Daryl Harris.

“Spake” will prove how a few snow flakes can change the world. You can follow Regine the Thirteenth in “Furbelow” as she discovers life is not all about velvet and chiffon.

YES Festival begins today and will continue through April 28.
