I just learned that three of my short plays have been chosen for production as part of the upcoming West Virginia Playwrights Festival in Clarksburg, May 20-22. Perhaps ironically, that’s the same weekend as the Opera House PlayFest, a play festival I’m directing at the Pocahontas County Opera House on May 20-21. In fact one of those plays, “…to a Flame,” will appear in both festivals, potentially competing with itself.
I’m thrilled my plays (also including “A Game of Twenty…” and “Fargo 3D”) will be a part of this first inaugural event honoring playwrights of the Mountain State. We’re not a state that’s known for its drama, and yet an awful lot of it is produced throughout the state, and has been historically. Time to change some perceptions.
And I’m doing my part with the Opera House PlayFest, which will feature three WV playwrights, including myself, as well as playwrights from Mississippi, Ohio and Virginia, too.
More information will soon be posted here.
