UI Playwrights Festival

Pauline Tyler (left) and UI sophomore Tanna Frederick perform a scene from "Why Birds Fly." The play is the first of six original works written by members of the UI Playwrights Workshop that will debut this week during the UI Playwright Festival.

While the rest of the University of Iowa gears up for final exams and stresses over research papers, theatre students have had the week off from classes.

They've found their own brand of stress: the Iowa Playwrights Festival, which takes flight tonight with "Why Birds Fly."

Performed, written and designed by UI theatre students, the annual festival is a six-day onslaught of full-length, original theatre productions, staged readings and group discussions. The festival will use all three of the UI Theatre Building's facilities - with new shows opening each day.
