The San Francisco-based company will work with next-generation theatre leaders from its hometown as well as from Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago.
The festival will feature shorts, staged readings, and a Young Playwrights Festival.
The inaugural fellows are Tessa Corrie, Rosie Hallett, Genevieve Jessee, Jasmine Murray, and Lindsey Abbott.
The four artists will fill yearlong curatorial roles, with the mission to expand PlayGround’s offerings and community reach.
The new cohort of fellows will work in the areas of communications, development, artistic programs, and theatre management.
The four plays will stream online May 28 as part of the second annual PlayGround Zoom Fest.
The theme for the 13th annual contest is justice.
A festival of Spanish classics, solo plays by Bill Irwin and Dael Orlandersmith and Sara Porkalob, and much, much, much more in our longest listing yet.
Vincent Terrell Durham’s play ‘Polar Bears, Black Boys & Prairie Fringed Orchids’ will stream around the country on June 19.
It’s got ‘play’ in the title, but PlayGround’s Zoom Fest is entering a new gray zone between theatre, film, and TV—and it has the SAG-AFTRA contract to prove it.
