Playwrights in Process

As part of our Play by Play programs for adult playwrights, we partnered with Cygnet Theatre to produce its second annual Playwrights in Process: New Play Festival. Four playwrights were selected from 54 submissions from across the County.

The festival introduced San Diego playgoers to new works and offered a series of workshops designed to introduce curious audiences to the art of new play development.  Facilitated talk-backs with the playwright followed each of the readings.

WINS Tour Readings






This was not our first live theatre presentation but is our favorite so far! The clearly defined characters made it very easy to follow and identify with ... great way of dealing with an important topic...
An excellent production!
