• A Short, One Minute Monologue
The Players New Play Festival invites local playwrights to submit their brand new, never-before-performed plays. 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 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 the festival runs August 5-9, 2019 at 7:30pm.
The following shows are finalists.
“Mother of Eve” by George Steitz
Director: Summer Dawn Wallace
“The Mentor” by Sylvia Reed
Director: Preston Boyd
“Bloodlines” by Connie Schindewolf
Director: Dan Higgs
“Damaged Goods” by Ron Pantello
Director: Carole Kleinberg
“Beyond the Summer of Love” by Jim Moss
Director: Pam Wiley
