Twenty By Twenty Fringe (TBTF) is a program that was conceived in an effort to provide a platform for artistic directors, theatre and film practitioners, and audiences across the country to watch bold, innovative, and intimate new works created by the most refreshing and current voices, artists in their 20s. 

 

TBTF values justice, equity, and resonance in theatre and film and strives to be a catalyst for young artists in celebrating their work, uplifting their voices, and providing low-risk opportunities for creativity and exploration.

Fringe 2022 featured 213 young artists from 19 states and territories and a beyond-exciting lineup with something for everyone -- from a true-crime documentary to a radioplay set in Cuba to a musical about growing apart. You won't want to miss any of it! 

All performances and screenings are FREE. 

Fringe has passed, but submissions open for Fringe 2023 later this year. For now, CHECK OUT THE FRINGE 2022 LINEUP BELOW.
