Festival Description

Located in the beautiful, historic town of Telluride, Colorado. The Telluride Playwright’s Festival offers an unique opportunity for the playwright, to work on his or her play with professional actors and directors, in a small intimate setting, far from a critical glare of a large city. This is a week long, intensive Festival, culminating in a staged reading open to the public; where the playwright can receive objective feedback. Participants must be available for the entire length of the Festival and are expected to fully participate, rewrite and work in a communal, supportive atmosphere. The goal is to be able to take your play to the next level. Maximum number of playwrights will be four. We are looking for full length plays that say something meaningful and that pertain to the times we live in. Either drama or comedy. You must be flexible and open to working with actors and directors in an informal atmosphere. Since we are 9000 feet above sea level in the Rocky Mountains, you must also be able to accommodate the high altitude.

Festival Dates July 9 - 15, 2012
