Brother-sister duo April Fools debuts a new hip-hop play, 'Lack on Lack'
In 2008, Victory Gardens Theater created its Ignition Festival of New Plays, a staged reading series of new works to highlight the theater's mission of bringing diversity to its stage through presentation—and possible development of—new works by playwrights of color under 30. That year, it received 120 submissions and developed two plays into full productions, including "The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity," by Kristoffer Diaz, which became a Pulitzer Prize finalist and launched the acting career of its star, Desmin Borges (FX's "You're the Worst").
