PLAYERS NEW PLAY FESTIVAL
Interested in new plays?
Once a year, local playwrights submit brand new, never-before-performed plays in an annual competition where audiences are given the opportunity to witness the birth of a brand-new play! It’s always interesting to watch as regional playwrights compete to have their play produced.
Five plays are chosen then performed in readers-style theater by actors under the leadership of a local director with a talk-back following the show to help give the playwright some constructive criticism. One play is chosen as the winner and a year later, after a few revisions, is performed with full sets and costumes.
This year’s winner is… Ron Pantello’s play, Damaged Goods. Congratulations to Ron and his creative team! Carole Kleinberg is on tap to continue with the process of re-writes and to direct the production set for August 4-9, 2020.
“This year’s play reading festival was especially productive. Five well-written and well thought out plays hitting some pretty substantial themes. Ron’s play rose to the top with its lighthearted dialogue, yet powerful message. We look forward to the future of this play, and of all the plays we gave a reading experience.” -Jeffery Kin
