Each summer PlayPenn hosts a two-week conference, inviting playwrights to develop new plays in a collaborative workshop environment. In order to encourage active revision and rewriting during the period of the conference, PlayPenn provides professional actors, directors, designers and dramaturgs with space, technical and administrative resources and ample time to use them. The process culminates in a series of staged readings to be presented to members of the local, regional and national professional theatre communities and to the community at large.
This year's group of plays includes work by Nicholas Wardigo, Kara Lee Corthron, Dan Dietz, James J. Christy, Samuel D. Hunter, and Charlotte Miller.
