The Playhouse Playwrights’ Project is now accepting submissions for its third year of staged readings of new plays. With the overwhelming response over the past few years, we look forward to this year’s Festival of new plays and new playwrights. Future goals include the development of some of these one-act plays into a full scale, main stage production.
