More about the festival:

"We greatly look forward to welcoming the playwrights to Ashland this October 18 through 23 for a week of play readings, development, and community gatherings in Ashland at the Main Stage Theatre of Southern Oregon University's Oregon Center for the Arts.

These five playwrights were selected as part of ANPF’s unique, long-standing reading process that brings together theatre lovers from Southern Oregon and beyond for a months-long process where hundreds of plays are read—without authorship being revealed—and discussed, moving forward toward the finalists. About 2% of the total plays submitted are given to the artistic director with authorship revealed. From there the final winners are selected by the artistic director with discussion and collaboration among our three associate artists.

This year’s Festival Week is celebratory in more ways than usual. In addition to our excitement with the selection of the winning plays and the unveiling of their authors, we are also feeling immense gratitude for the return to in-person performances after two and a half years of Zoom theatre and virtual workshops. We are also in the midst of our 30th anniversary season, a milestone year of supporting new works for the stage.

Artistic Directors and theater organization leaders receive complimentary tickets. Check in at the box office for free passes. The box office opens one hour before showtime."
