About this show

Through the month of June, The Gallery Players celebrates playwrights and new works in the The 12th Annual Black Box New Play Festival. Each weekend is a new experience as The Gallery Players introduces new crops of talent and celebrates its alumni, June 4-28, 2009. Where can a playwright find an outlet? Where can an audience see new works? The Gallery Players provides both of these in this Festival. Over the years of producing the Festival, we have developed works by countless playwrights, many of whom continue to work with The Gallery Players each year to incubate their new ideas. More than 300 plays have appeared in the Black Box New Play Festival since its inception and this year will bring even more writing and acting talent to the stage. Who knows what you'll discover in the Box? Full length plays open and close the festival, with two weekends of original one-acts in between. Free readings of new plays will take place Saturdays at 3pm. Click here to purchase a festival pass. Box 1 June 4-7 Father Mike by T.J. Edwards.
