At Theater Emory this spring, six student writers are being given an opportunity many playwrights dream of: the chance to see their plays produced by a professional theater company.  With "6x6," Theater Emory presents six short, one-person plays from current and former playwriting students at Emory.

Developed during Theater Emory's Brave New Works festival in 2011, and with the guidance of Theater Emory and Creative Writing Program faculty, the plays present original characters from six unique young voices. A serial-killing baker, a dispirited cartoonist, a bitter barista and others create an evening of theater both thoughtful and funny.

"6x6" premiers at the Schwartz Center for Performing Arts Theater Lab, at 7 p.m. on Feb. 16-18 and Feb. 22-25; and at 2 p.m. on Feb. 19 and Feb. 26.

"6x6" was commissioned by and developed at Theater Emory. The plays include:

• "The Book of Joe," by Jiréh Holder (Morehouse College), directed by Tim McDonough

• "Incredible," by Esther Albrecht '11C, directed by Donald McManus

• "Is Zoe's Room Available," by Jamie Schlansky, directed by Michael Evenden

• "Milton's Revolution," by Geoff Schorkopf '11C, directed by Pat Miller

• "Rage: Alfred's Sparagmos," by Alexandra Kayhart, directed by Janice Akers

• "Therapy," by Arianna Skibell, directed by Lisa Paulsen
