Welp, it’s been a seriously rough couple of weeks for this producer: this year’s ONSTAGE Finalists were all so fantastic that narrowing the list down to a producable number was heart-breakingly difficult! I can only say that after a lot of hair-pulling, we have an incredibly strong line-up of hilarious, introspective, moving, and wacky pieces – which is just the way I like it!
Now, don’t you want to witness these awesome new plays for yourself? Well, you’re about to get your chance, because the plays are going to be read at the Samuel French Bookshop in Hollywood, CA on Saturday, June 11th at 1pm. The reading is free, and we’ll have snacks and wine – plus the Los Angeles Female Playwrights Initiative will be there! The only tricky thing is making sure we have enough space, so RSVP to our Facebook page, and arrive early to make sure you get a seat!
Now, how about I share with you the list of winning plays?
