The Public Theater’s Under the Radar Festival is known for being a great way to see some of the best new theater from artists from around the world. One of those artists, Chilean writer-director Guillermo Calderón, made such an impact on the Public (and those lucky enough to have seen his critically acclaimed, politically charged play, Diciembre) when it played at the 2011 festival, that they invited him back this year for a stand alone slot as part of their regular season. His new play Neva begins its English language premiere this Friday, March 1.
