September Write Away!

We’ll once again zoomcast an improv/playwriting/cold-read mashup produced by Freestyle Rep and Synergy Theater. Five playwrights from both coasts will write short plays based on audience suggestions followed by mostly-brilliant, always-fun cold readings.

Audience members will engage in some fun creative writing exercises while the playwrights do their thing off-screen. Check back here to register for this free event. It will also be broadcast on Facebook Live.

September 20th, 4:15pm (7:15pm ET)

In the Playoffs

The Playoffs festival includes six “play groups”, with each group featuring staged readings of FIVE ten-minute plays by Playwrights Center of San Francisco members. Audience members of each group will vote for their two favorite plays in that group. The top audience favorite from each group will receive a full production in the fall. The PlayOffs showcases the talents of 30 PCSF playwrights, 6 directors and 45 actors. My short play, Pebbles on a Shore, will be presented on July 25th at 2pm. It’s free, but you need to register.

I’d love your support!
