New Orleans--Southern Rep continues its "New Plays New Orleans" mission with 3X3: THE ONE ACTS by Kerry Cahill, Michael Santos, and Jon Broder, continues a year-long cycle presenting works by eleven senior members of 6X6 Play Slam. The 6X6 Play Slam, now in its third year, is a group of local playwrights who write 10-minute plays which are presented six times a year by Southern Rep Theatre. 3X3: THE ONE ACTS runs January 14th and 15th, 2013, at 7:30pm, at Mid-City Theatre, 3540 Toulouse Street, New Orleans, LA.
"The most vital and necessary work we do at Southern Rep Theatre is creating programs that develop and support our local playwrights. Our goal is to nurture and provide outlets for the very talented playwrights that are in our great city. The 6X6 Play Slam, and now 3X3, were created to get writers writing-and it works. The 6X6 Play Slam and DEBAUCHERY by Pat Bourgeois, a monthly NOLA soap opera, just celebrated their two-year anniversaries. Audiences are hungry for new plays in New Orleans!"
--Aimée Hayes, Producing Artistic Director

Three age-old friends join in a weekly ritual of beer, crude jokes, maternal insults, and pondering the meaning of life.
