The Maine Playwrights Festival is now in its 16th year of nurturing the development of new scripts by Maine writers. The festival is centered on developing and honing short plays, from submission through staged readings, rewrites, and culminating in a series of public performances.
The 2017 Maine Playwrights Festival will present two weekends of fully staged performances from April 27 to May 7, 2017. Each selected script will be performed on every show night during the festival. The plays will be performed in Portland at the Portland Ballet Studio Theater on Forest Avenue from April 27 to May 6, 2017, and in a special one-night-only performance on the University of Maine campus in Orono on Sunday, May 7, 2017.
