Regional Playwright Festival Winners Announced

Rochester, NY – Geva Theatre Center and Writers & Books are once again collaborating to give regional playwrights the opportunity to bring their works to local audiences. The selected plays for this year’s Regional Playwrights Festival and the dates they will be preformed are:

Monday, April 21, at 7:00 pm in the Nextstage: three short plays and one short full-length:

Homework, by Jeffery Jones

Amour No More, by Nancy Preston Stark

Push the Button, by Johannes Bockwoldt

The Cell, by Maria Brandt


Monday, April 28, at 7:00 in the Nextstage: one full-length play:

Dad’s Aquarium, by Mark Jabaut


Attendence is free, but you must register with the Geva Box Office.


Playwrights were selected through an open competitive process. Each play will be read by professional actors at Geva. The purpose of the festival is to give promising regional writers a chance to hear their work aloud, and thereby gain information they need to rewrite and take the script to another level of development.
