Barter Theatre Announces Appalachian Festival of Plays and Playwrights Line-Up
The festival will feature professional actors in readings of eight new plays. Each reading is followed by a discussion with the audience, selected panelists, and Barter artists, providing feedback the playwrights will use to further develop their work.
