The PlayGround Experiment

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

Volume 44

Volume 44 was voluminous!!! 36 actors 6 playwrights. Friends. Prizes and no booze and we still had an amazing time! Kudos to everyone who attended, participated, thought about coming but had to make dat money, but will make it to another one. Special thanks to Welcoming Committee Rock stars: Christopher Buchanan, Natalie Neckyfarow. And special thank you to our Photographer extraordinaire Priyanka Krishnan!
