Nu Sass is proud to be partnering with The Jubilee for our 2020 and 2021 seasons!

The Jubilee is a yearlong, nationwide theatre festival featuring work generated by those who have historically been excluded--including but not limited to artists of color, Native American and Indigenous and First Nations artists, women, non-binary and gender non-conforming artists, LGBTQIA2+ artists, Deaf artists, and artists with disabilities?

Nu Sass will be presenting 4 world premiere’s in 2 seasons of new, original works written by marginalized genders.

Our seasons will be following the role of women in myths and stories, how they influence our modern lives, and how the times may or may not have changed since those historic women were invented or lived.

We hope you’ll join us for the never before seen and heard stories are told.

A polyamorous cis-bi pragmatist actor gave an anti-romantic cis-het realist playwright creative license to tell a (mostly) real life story about looking for love in ALL the places. What resulted is an incomplete guide to dating your Aubrey.

Join us for a one-woman tragic comedy about fucking up, jezebels, ethical non-monogamy, and all other things love.

DC Metro Theater Arts Review: ‘The Ugly One’ at Nu Sass Productions

In both substance and setting, Nu Sass creates up-close experiences that audiences cannot help but be drawn into, on themes that importantly intersect women’s lives...

BWW Review: Nu Sass Presents Amusing Satire THE UGLY ONE

by Barbara Johnson Nov. 19, 2017

t's what's on the inside that counts. THE UGLY ONE by German playwright Marius von Mayenburg skewers that idea, and Nu Sass brings us an energetic take on the satirical play.
