“The Play’s the Thing: Life Inspired” 2020
Hello, Friends of Itinerant Theatre,
We are pleased to finally announce our selections for our “The Play’s the Thing: Life Inspired” New Play Series. The process was a difficult one, as we once again had almost 900 submissions, which is wonderful. If you are a playwright, thank you so much for your interest and submission. It was a difficult decision to make, but in the end we decided on these 26 that we hope will leave our audiences inspired.
I’m sure you are all expecting and understand that our dates have now had to change and are now necessarily indefinitely postponed until our stay-at-home orders are lifted, and our actors and audiences can all safely return to life in our new normal, whatever that may be. We will announce those dates, as soon as they are known.
In the meantime, please stay safe, stay inside, WRITE A PLAY or SEE A PLAY via some virtual medium. Take care of yourselves. I may even soon be inspired to have next year’s theme and begin to accept next season’s submissions. For that, playwrights, please keep your eyes out for submission call-outs from Itinerant Theatre.
Thank you all, dear playwrights. Congratulations to the following 26 plays listed below (alphabetized by playwright).
