Meet Our Final 30

After reading over one thousand submissions, we are happy to announce our Final 30 Playwrights. Thank you to every playwright who submitted their work this year. We originally said we’d choose twenty four plays for this year’s festival, but with so much incredible work our staff at Samuel French decided to increase the final total.
