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 be comprised of two weekends of fully staged performances of short plays (8-30 minutes in length). Each selected script will be performed on every show night during the festival. The plays will be performed at the Portland Ballet Studio Theater on Forest Ave. in Portland, April 27 to May 6, 2017.
