The PlayGround Experiment

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

Volume 30

We are in our 30's and never looked better. Even in torrential rainstorms we still had a wet and packed house. Our playwrights and actors kept us warm with their amazing energy and work. Special Thanks to our Welcoming Committee Paul "Dante" Pakler. We were blessed to have two kick ass Stage direction readers of Courtney Williams and Priyank Rastogi.
