To being able to announce this year's Festival.
Check back very soon... You'll hear it here first.
Over the past couple weeks I've been in touch with our colleagues at the O'Neill, PlayPenn etc... comparing our finalist lists, to see if there was overlap and potential conflicts. In the past we've selected the same plays as other festivals and because of timing issues the writer has had to chose which to attend. This year everyone I spoke to had an almost completely different list of finalists from each other. I'm not sure exactly what to make of this, but I think it means it's been a really great year for playwrighting, with so many fantastic plays out there to chose from.
