About the Pacific Playwrights Festival:



Launched in 1998, South Coast Repertory’s annual Pacific Playwrights Festival (PPF) has become a major national showcase for new plays. The 16th Festival in April 2013 will bring the total number of plays presented in PPF to 105, representing the work of 83 playwrights. Each year’s three-day festival attracts theater professionals from across the natio, who are drawn by the chance to be the first to see some of the best new plays in the country. These artistic leaders, along with SCR’s devoted new play audiences, take advantage of the opportunity to engage with seven new plays that traverse the theatrical spectrum. And along the way PPF becomes a convivial gathering place for the sharing of ideas with colleagues and friends, old and new.

The 2013 Pacific Playwrights Festival takes place April 26 – 28 and features two fully-staged world premieres (Noah Haidle’s Smokefall and Beau Willimon’s The Parisian Woman) and five staged readings (Zoe Kazan’s Trudy and Max in Love (Or That Forever Feeling), Michael Hollinger’s Hope and Gravity, Carla Ching’s Fast Company, Gregory S Moss’ Reunion, and Jordan Harrison’s Marjorie Prime).
