CulturalDC Announces 25 Finalists for Source Festival’s Full-Length Plays
WASHINGTON, DC – CulturalDC is pleased to announce that 25 Full-Length Plays have been selected as finalists for Source Festival 2015. Three Full-Length Plays will be selected from the 25 finalists to be produced at the Source Festival from June 5-28, 2015.
Full-Length Plays are submitted to the Festival by invitation only. Festival producers invite playwrights previously produced by the Festival, writers based in the DC Metro Area and writers identified through a nationwide spotter system to submit never before produced Full-Length Plays. The Festival received a record number of 131 Full-Length Plays this fall.
The 25 finalists were selected after being evaluated by a team of over 75 readers and Source Festival producers, led by Source Festival Artistic Director and CulturalDC’s Director of Artistic Programs Jenny McConnell Frederick. The Festival will also feature 18 10-Minute Plays and three Artistic Blind Dates. The three selected Full-Length scripts will be announced in December.
A full list of the plays including playwright bios is available here ( SF15 Top 25 FLP Release (FINAL) 11-12-14).
