Festival Description

The annual Pacific Playwrights takes place the late spring. The South Coast Repertory produces the Pacific Playwrights Festival, presenting new plays in readings, workshops and productions during a three-day period. Audiences consist of local playgoers and representatives from theatres nationwide.

The goal of the Pacific Playwrights Festival is to provide a gathering place for writers and theatre leaders to meet informally, sharing ideas and interests as new projects emerge in staged readings, workshops and full productions. In June 1998, South Coast Repertory launched the first Annual Pacific Playwrights Festival (PPF). The Festival consisted of five staged readings, workshops on the Second Stage, and the world premiere of Richard Greenberg’s Hurrah at Last, which concluded its five-week run in a full production on SCR’s Mainstage. Since then the Pacific Playwrights Festival has showcased as many as 10 new American plays each year including world premieres.
