Plays of Humana-ty

Louisville's Humana Festival of new American plays has announced its core productions for 2005. They include plays by John Bellusso, Kathleen Tolan, Carlyle Brown, Kia Corthron, Adam Bock, and Allison Moore.

I've never been to Humana, but it's a festival I've always wanted to attend. For a bit of time each year, Kentucky becomes the center of the American theatrical scene.
