      Go to or to request the Zoom link.

      Each summer at the end of July, we present a three-day event showcasing readings of student work from the Playwright’s Lab. Normally, these eight readings are minimally staged at Mill Mountain Theatre's Waldron Stage for the general public and close to a dozen guest professional responders from all over the globe. As part of the Festival there will be a panel discussion when our guest respondents will introduce themselves, talk briefly about their own background, and then give a moderated response to the festival as a whole. Get acquainted with these plays and playwrights before they are famous, and engage in a conversation about theatre with our students, faculty, and some established theatre professionals. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing, Festival readings will be presented live online via Zoom (all times Eastern).

      Free, open to the public

      (The 8 pm slot on the July 19 is a panel discussion with our Festival Guest Respondents)
