We're thrilled to announce the commission of a brand-new play by playwright Kari Bentley-Quinn. This new play marks Boomerang's first ever commissioned work.

Kari will be developing this new play throughout 2024. The new work will be featured in the First Flight New Play Festival in December 2024.


This commission is made possible by funds from the New York State Council on the Arts


The Baton Project is a play reading series where artists “pass on” the opportunity to another artist, helping to recognize the talent of their peers and to bring industry recognition to artists who might not have received it yet.


The goal is for artistic creators to work collegially by helping promote each other's work. We know that every creator has a colleague about whom they think, “wow, how does the world not know about them?” This would be an opportunity to celebrate the work of those colleagues.
