Gulfshore Playhouse's Third Annual New Works Festival will continue to bring exciting new programming to Naples audiences. Bringing together four playwrights and a team of actors and directors, this week long festival will offer a place for the playwrights to hone their plays and then present their work to an audience.
One of the most important steps for a playwright in the creation of a new play is the transition from writing in a solitary environment, to adding actors, and ultimately an audience to see how the play works in performance. Gulfshore Playhouse's audiences now have the pleasure of stepping into that incredibly magic space where a play is taking flight for the first time.
Throughout the week, these four selected playwrights will carefully craft their works with actor and director input, culminating in a weekend of staged readings. Gulfshore Playhouse is thrilled to contribute to the development of new work in the American theatre, and even more thrilled to offer our audiences access at an incredibly affordable price.

When a wealthy entrepreneur is shot down and killed in his prime his murder reveals a history of indiscretions including infidelity, bribery, fraud and even manslaughter. But it takes more than one cook to stir this broth, and no doubt cyanide may season the recipe. His little black book is rather revealing. The suspect list grows and grows. Take a sentimental journey and unravel a web of lies, secrets and unprecedented events that lead to some surprisingly unexpected homicides. It's a case of deception, of deep, dark secrets, and self centered disloyalty. This homicide investigation is so much fun, you'll want to play it again, Sam.

I Love a Piano is a look at America through the insightful and hopeful eyes of Irving Berlin, who, according to Jerome Kern, "... has no place in American music. He is American Music." The show, which traces the life of a uniquely flawed upright piano, celebrates the music and lyrics of the legendary composer, showcasing 64 of his more than 1000 songs. From "Alexander's Ragtime Band" to "Blue Skies"; from "Puttin' on the Ritz" and "Cheek to Cheek" to "Always" and "White Christmas" to "Oh, How I Hate to Get Up in the Morning" and "God Bless America", Irving Berlin's songbook is a history lesson set to music. Conceived and written by Ray Roderick and Michael Berkeley, this joyful salute captures the spirit of America from the ragtime rhythms of the early 20th century, through the rich sophistication of the 1920s and 30s; from the rousing patriotism of two World Wars into the prosperous spirit of the 1950s and well beyond.
