The PlayGround Experiment

A safe place for Playwrights, Actors and Others Creatives to meet, play and caffeinate!

Volume 29

What a brilliant evening of firsts we had. It was our first volume of six playwrights. First time with two awesome Stage Directions readers Sharlene Hartman and Jackson Perrin. Three new playwrights read for the first time. Nine new actors joined us. Two new playwrights were a killer welcoming commitee Kimberly Kalaja and Rachel Mann. Kudos to everyone who was there and everyone who wasn't because everyone deserves Kudos because you are all amazing. Photos again by the amazing Tim Lorge.
