Candrice Jones’s new play about a Southern girls’ basketball team has come a long way, but it hasn’t been a layup.
The Bay Area Playwrights Festival will become a biennial hybrid offering, the Resident Playwrights program will become a 2-year residency, and the foundation will conclude their Rough Readings program.
This year will showcase new works by Inda Craig-Galván, Elana Dykewomon, Denmo Ibrahim, Iraisa Ann Reilly, and Sharifa Yasmin.
This year’s festival will feature works from Jaisey Bates, Miyoko Conley, Kaela Mei-Shing Garvin, Sam Hamashima, and Johnny G. Lloyd.
From festival readings to benefit cabarets, on-demand stage captures to immersive soundscapes, there’s no shortage of at-home theatre.
The festival’s 43rd edition will feature new plays by Tyler English-Beckwith, Stefani Kuo, Jordan Ramirez Puckett, Deneen Reynolds-Knott, and Noelle Viñas.
The festival will feature readings of plays by Jon Bernson, Dustin Chinn, Kristiana Rae Colón, Patricia Cotter, T.D. Mitchell, and Madhuri Shekar.
Hilary Bettis, Clarence Coo, Bennett Fisher, Lauren Gunderson, Nilan Johnson, and Mona Mansour will receive readings of their plays.
The Playwrights Foundation will feature readings of new plays by Hansol Jung, Walt McGough, and Andrew P. Saito, among others.
Over two weekends, writers at the Bay Area Playwrights Festival get two passes at their work, and their needs are as different as their plays.
