CULTURALDC ANNOUNCES FINALISTS FOR SOURCE FESTIVAL’S FULL-LENGTH PLAYS
WASHINGTON, DC – CulturalDC is pleased to announce that 22 Full-Length Plays have been selected as finalists for Source Festival 2016. The scripts were vetted 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 seeks to develop and produce work that is innovative in its structure and content and that pushes the boundaries of traditional theatricality.
These 22 scripts, narrowed from a record-breaking submission pool of 145 plays represent some of the freshest, most compelling plays being writing in America. The three selected Full-Length scripts will be announced in December. The Festival runs from June 8th – July 3rd 2016 and will also feature 18 10-Minute Plays and three Artistic Blind Dates.
A full list of the plays, including playwright bios, is available here.
