I’ve got to admit, wrapping up our 2014 festival the same weekend as our 2015 submission deadline was a bit ambitious – I was fielding emails about show tickets at the same time I was replying to playwrights eager to make our deadline. While the collision of the two did lend a “full circle” feel to the first week of January, it was also a bit dizzying and I’ve only now begun to feel like I’m catching up on both!
We had 116 plays/monologues submitted this year, with playwrights sending in work from across the country. We also had playwrights submit work from Canada, Australia, and Germany as well! How exciting!
We’ve got some new and exciting updates about the ONSTAGE Project to share with you… but not yet. Suffice to say this month has yielded a WONDERFUL surprise that has us hopping up and down with excitement, but we want to announce it properly – not in a catch-up post like this one, so keep your eyes peeled for an announcement soon.
In the meantime, we’d like to give a nice big shout out to all of our 2015 playwrights. We’ve received some truly incredible work, and we love how much time and energy they are putting into our peer review process! We can’t wait to compile everyone’s evaluations and start announcing our semi-finalists.
