Dorset Theatre Festival has announced the full lineup and casting for its inaugural Pipeline Series, which will feature four one-night-only presentations at the Dorset Playhouse from June 26 through August 12.

The Pipeline Series is described as "a cutting edge series of four presentations of works destined to become tomorrow's classics" and builds on Dorset Theatre Festival's growing reputation as an incubator of new work.

The schedule for the presentations is as follows: Kate Cortesi's Is Edward Snowden Single?
