New Playwrights Festival - Readings from New VI Playwrights submissions

Staged readings will take place from plays that were submitted for this year's New Playwrights Festival, crafted by Virgin Islander playwrights. For the past several years, a play from each of this readings was then produced in full, on-stage, during Pistarckle's regular season.

It's a great way to taste a slice of new plays, crafted by Virgin Islander playwrights. This year's chosen plays are "Sorrow of the sea Maidens" by Fengar Gael, and "Made In Heaven" by Steven Bogart.
