McCall, IDSeven Devils Playwrights Conference returns to McCall, ID with a program of free public events running June 7-17. Now in its 23rd year, the conference brings playwrights and theatre artists from around the country together to develop and present new plays by some of the nation’s most exciting new voices in partnership with the Alpine Playhouse.

The 2023 playwrights Susan Kathryn Hefti, Gloria Oladipo, Savannah Reich, Alec Silberblatt, Wolfgang Jones, and AZ Espinoza come from across the country and join an illustrious list of playwrights whose work has gone on to success after having been developed in McCall.

Playwright AZ Espinoza, who had their play Homeridae developed at the 2019 Conference, will be returning this year as the recipient of the 4-Seasons Residency, a national year-long residency program awarded each year to an exceptional voice in the American Theatre. Playwright Wolfgang Jones, a native of New Orleans, is currently in the MFA Playwriting Program at the University of Idaho.

In addition to presenting five new plays, selected from over 600 submissions, events include a Masterclass featuring new work by McCall-Donnelly High School students and a free playwriting workshop led by A.P. Andrews.
