City Theatre is hosting its Playwright Festival 2015 with eight railroad-inspired plays beginning April 24 and continuing through May 17 in the Art Court Theatre in the Performing Arts Center. The plays are performed by students, directed by faculty and former students and written by local playwrights.
“Many of the playwrights have written for us before, both for The Playwright’s Festival in previous years and the 29 ½ Hour Playwriting Festival,” said Adrienne Sher, City College Theater Arts professor and City Theatre director.
The eight plays will be divided into two sets of four, with performances for Evening A on April 24, May 2, 8 and 9 at 8 p.m. and April 26, May 16 and 17 at 2 p.m.
The second set of performances for Evening B will take place April 25, May 1, 15 and 16 at 8 p.m. and April 30, May 9 and 10 at 2 p.m.
