2016 Playwrights Festival

2016 Playwrights Festival

After a packed weekend of events including a wildly enthusiastic weekend of audiences for the the world premiere of Theroun Patterson's The Cannibals, a post-show talkback, our staged readings of this year's three finalists and our 24 Hour Playhouse with our friends at 5th Wall Productions we are happy to announce the winner of our 2016 Playwrights Festival Best New Work...

Julie Zaffarano's hilariously clever and sexy romantic comedy
'The PlayMakers' which will makes its world premiere next summer at our 2017 festival. 

Congrats to our other two finalists Jim Colgan and Mark Scharf for offering their wonderful works for consideration and to Theroun Patterson for seeing the first production of his winning play! 

Thank you to all the talented and generous volunteers who offered their time to read, direct and perform our plays and our jury who worked hard to narrow down the near 100 entries.

Looking forward to next year and hope you all come catch the final three performances of ‪#‎thecannibals‬!
