Today I learned that my new farce “Philosophus” has achieved semi-finalist status in The Summer Playwrights Festival sponsored by The Road Theatre Company of North Hollywood, California.
The Road Theatre Company is devoted to
- supporting world, American, and West Coast premieres of theatrical works which introduce socially and/or politically relevant new voices and new thoughts to the American stage.
- introducing younger audiences to the world of theatre through our mainstage productions, workshops, and free weekly reading series
- promoting theatrical outreach programs to seniors and at risk groups
- furthering their resident company as a leader and champion of new works in Los Angeles and the nation.
From their website:
“The Road Theatre’s annual Summer Playwrights Festival (SPF7) is a fundraising event in late July that mounts 40 staged readings of new plays in 8 exciting days. The festival is growing larger every year with playwrights from around the country and around the world participating… Readings are held in both our Historic Lankershim Arts Center Theater and Gallery and in our new 77-seat theater in the NoHo Senior Arts Colony. Although we receive hundreds of submissions for our festival, new and established playwrights are encouraged to submit.”
…and, of the hundreds, “Philosophus” is among the finalist pack! Thanks so much to Road Theatre Company!
