Enjoy new works created by the playwrights of tomorrow when Theatre and Dance at Wayne State University presents the 2019 Heck-Rabi Playwriting Festival this weekend. Performances are Friday through Sunday, Feb. 1-3, in the Studio Theatre at the Hilberry Theatre in Detroit.
Details from Theatre and Dance at Wayne:
Since 2000, the Studio Theatre at the Hilberry has hosted the Louise Heck-Rabi Dramatic Playwriting One Act Festival, encouraging young playwrights to submit their original works. Each year, six to seven semi-finalists are chosen out of all submissions. The plays are then read at a Workshop, where they are critiqued by judges. Three finalists win a scholarship as well as the opportunity to produce their play in front of a live audience. Each winning playwright has a chance to work with a student director and student performers to realize their productions on the stage — and those plays are what you’ll experience during each performance.
