It is a place where writers can create and refine their work for the stage.

Three of the outstanding works produced during the festival will receive $1,000 awards in the categories of Best Play, Best Short and Audience. There is no submission or participation fee and each playwright will receive a monetary production stipend at the start of the festival to defray some of the production costs.
