My play THE MOST DANGEROUS HIGHWAY IN THE WORLD, set along a treacherous highway in Afghanistan, is one of six scripts selected for the NNPN’s annual National Showcase of New Plays. The NNPN holds a unique and necessary place in the universe of new play development in this country. I’m honored to be a part.
About the Showcase: The National Showcase of New Plays is a traveling new-play festival that presents the country’s best unproduced plays in staged reading format to an intimate gathering of theater professionals. With artistic leadership from most of our 29 Core Member and 45 Associate Member Theaters in attendance, the Showcase creates a unique, invaluable opportunity for production-ready scripts to be heard by the people most willing to produce them. In addition to artistic and managing directors, we invite a group of 100 playwrights, literary managers, playwright agents, and other colleagues from around the country to network with us on behalf of the plays and playwrights we present. All scripts are read blind. The vast majority of the scripts read at the Showcase go on to professional productions within and outside the Network.
