Finalists selected for 2nd Act Players’ 2017 New Playwrights’ Showcase

A dozen scripts have been selected as finalists in the 2nd Act Players’ short-script competition. From these, our panel of judges will select six winning scripts to be read during the 2nd Act Players’ 2017 New Playwrights’ Showcase Sept. 23-24.

“Our mission is to showcase new talent, we did that last season with our one-act play festival, producing two one-act plays, but we wanted to do more this season,” explains John N. Frank, 2nd Act cofounder and creative director. “So we’re going in a different direction, having staged readings of this year’s winning scripts. That will allow us to showcase even more writing talent.”

Winning scripts will be announced in early August with auditions for actors to read them in mid-August and readings done on the evening of Saturday, Sept. 23 and the afternoon of Sunday, Sept. 24.

Tickets for the readings are only $10 if purchased in advance, $15 at the door. To buy your tickets now, simply click here.
