Accepting Submissions for CENTRE STAGE – SOUTH CAROLINA’S NEW PLAY FESTIVAL
Centre Stage’s 11th Annual New Play Festival will run in September of 2013 (dates pending) in Greenville, South Carolina.
The New Play Festival at Centre Stage features the works of three or four finalists selected from submissions of playwrights. These plays will be presented in staged readings that begin each evening at 7 p.m. Admission to the readings is free and open to the public.
Each performance will be followed by an in-depth discussion of the work, led by the Festival Chairperson and a guest Playwright-In-Residence. On the last evening of the Festival, Centre Stage will present the latest work in development by the Playwright-In-Residence, followed by a discussion of that work with the playwright.
