The Playwrights Foundation announced the lineup for the 34th annual Bay Area Playwrights Festival — and one of them is my old Great Plains Theater Conference roomie Clarence Coo!
Speaking of people I hope google themselves, Lauren Gunderson also got in. Lauren wrote one of my favorite plays I ever read as a member of a literary committee that shall remain nameless. But I shall name the play, Baby M, because I really dug it. Maybe I’ll finally meet her when I’m drinking a beer with Clarence (unless he’s too big a hotshot to be seen with a BAPF groupie).
Anyway, enough about me. Here’s the whole list:
Full Length Plays
- Clarence Coo, Beautiful Province (Belle Province)
- Jackie Siblies Drury, We Are Proud to Present a Presentation …
- Lauren Gunderson, Rock Creek: Southern Gothic
- Amelia Roper, Hong Kong Dinosaur
BASH! (Bay Area Short Plays)
- Chinaka Hodge
- Kate E. Ryan
The festival runs July 22-31; more here.
