Genesis Festival of New Plays – Iseult et Tristan

By Pia Wilson


Genesis Festival of New Plays – returns in February 2020 for staged readings of new works in the studio at the NBPAC – and highlights the work of Lisa B. Thompson, writer of popular Crossroads hit, Single Black Female in a special Genesis: Spotlight. Other works by Ricardo Khan and Pia Wilson. The Genesis Festival is a playwright laboratory experience that consists of three separate shows of stage readings for the audience to enjoy and critique.


Iseult et Tristan is an adaptation of the 12th century tragic romance centered on the adulterous love affair between Cornish knight Tristan and Irish princess/healer Iseult, who is set to marry King Mark of Cornwall. In this 21st century retelling of the story, a young, African American boxer, Iseult, struggles with addiction and her love for her sister Margot's fiancé, Tristan — all while she pursues her dream of being a gold medalist at the Olympics.
