The Series begins! Expanded in size, caliber, and scope, the 2011 Series showcases the work of 6 emerging, professional playwrights from all over the country. 10 original works in 5 days.
For our third annual Initiative, our Resident Playwright Joshua Mikel and myself invited 3 Visiting Playwright Fellows for the month of July alongside 2 Special Guest Playwrights for a more limited duration.
These playwrights, housed on Sweet Briar's bucolic campus, are provided unstructured time, space, and artistic feedback, as they endeavor development on work both pre-written and born on campus.
This afternoon we opened the Series with the first two of our AD HOC Readings. A successful afternoon all around. Do not miss these readings. We have our strongest group of playwrights yet and I am incredibly proud to showcase this work to our company, our patrons, and our community.
