ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Inaugurated in November 2011 as a co-production of Tangent Theatre Company in Tivoli New York and AboutFACE Ireland based in Dublin, NEWvember is a festival of rehearsed readings of new plays, taking place over four days. The first six festivals took place in the historic village of Tivoli (in upstate New York).
