Now in its 13th year, Brits Off Broadway continues to be the highlight of the spring theater season, introducing bold new artists and new British theater to adventurous New York audiences.

This years Brits Off Broadway festival opens with the story of a gambling man who places one last bet after discovering he has cancer in A GAMBLER'S GUIDE TO DYING. Henry Naylor returns to this year's Festival with a double bill of two powerful, timely one acts: ECHOES, a story that draws astonishing parallels between the lives of a Jihadi bride and a Victorian pioneer; and ANGEL a stunning true story of a female resistance fighter most feared by ISIS.

FOSSILS whisks us off to Scotland, where a discovery in Loch Ness draws a science researcher to the famous loch in search of her missing father. IPHIGENIA IN SPLOTT is a modern reworking of the enduring Greek legend set in the Splott district of Cardiff, Wales, which arrives at 59E59 Theaters after its a critically acclaimed run at The National.

A lesbian woman must come to terms with her partner's transition in ROTTERDAM. Playwright Matthew Wilkinson returns to 59E59 Theaters with MY EYES WENT DARK, the searing story of a man who exacts his own revenge after losing his family in a plane crash. A broKen Down train forces a couple on a first date to communicate without their WiFi enabled devices in UNDERGROUND.

Anchoring the festival in Theater A are two British comedies from two different centuries highlighting how far the class wars have come in Britain (and also how little they've changed): the US premiere of a rediscovered J.B. Priestley comedic gem THE ROUNDABOUT and Torben Betts' (Alan Ayckbourn's protégé) madcap comedy of manners INVINCIBLE.
