2015 Gainesville Homegrown Local Playwrights’ Showcase

December 3-6, 2015; various times

Our 2015-2016 Season will mark the third anniversary of this not-to-be-missed event! For audiences, it’s the opportunity to see staged readings of local authors’ plays here– first– before they hit the big time! For local playwrights, it’s the opportunity to see how your play works with real actors and real audiences so that you can tweak it before submitting it for consideration as a mainstage event.

In prior years, we’ve enjoyed

Outside Daughter by Ann Magaha
After the Drums by Chuck Lipsig
Sandwich by Violet Asmuth

Small Town Knights by Chuck Lipsig
The Shortcut by Kenneth Brown and Rachel Wayne
