Second drafts of Playwrights Festival submissions were due Friday Dec. 13. 49 plays were submitted, and the final deadline is Jan. 16.
These one-act plays will be evaluated by a panel of judges in January, and those chosen will be cast and rehearsals will begin with professional directors.
The process will be overseen by drama teacher Christopher Moore.
The judges will include professional writers, teachers, directors, actors and dramaturges.
“These wonderful, dedicated and talented professionals volunteer their time and expertise to this Festival,” Moore said in an email.
The Playwrights Festival will take place in Rugby Theatre from Thursday April 24 to Sunday April 26.
