The New Black Playwright's Festival returns to Actor's Express this fall and they are looking for new one-act scripts to be produced as staged readings. The exciting series brings back to the Atlanta theatre community the opportunity to hear from new writers with great stories. The festival endured a long absence from the Atlanta theatre scene.
"It has certainly been way too long but I am very excited about our re-launch," says Founder Karen Horne Seymour.
The festival enjoyed several years of progress and success when it first began in 1997. The following six years, the Festival presented more than twenty-seven playwrights and twenty-nine plays. The stage readings have a scheduled three night run beginning Sunday, September 18, 2011 at Actor's Express 887 W. Marietta Street in the King Plow Art Center.
