Bay Area Playwrights Festival

Playwrights Foundation

The Bay Area Playwrights Festival, now in its 42nd year, welcomes a new cohort of fiercely talented and insightful playwrights who present challenging and provocative developing new work this summer. Save the date for two transformative weekends of readings, speakers, panels and a celebration of the creative fire. Check the website for lineup.

This is what SF/Arts curator Jean Schiffman has to say about Bay Area Playwrights Festival :

It’s likely that at least one, probably more, of the staged readings at this year’s festival—written by Terence Anthony, Jeesun Choi, Candrice Jones, Tori Keenan-Zelt, christopher oscar peña and Jonathan Spector—will end up as a national success story. Each play gets two public readings; other activities include panel discussions. Among the provocative titles: “House of the Negro Insane” and “How the Baby Died” (relax: it’s a dark comedy).
