AACT has extended the deadline to apply to produce a winning play from AACTNewPlayFest to August 1. AACT will select 5-10 member theatres to produce the winning plays. Theatres will be responsible for providing a fully realized production between June 2013 and December 2014 and for bringing in the playwright for a rehearsal or a performance. Theatres will reap these benefits:
- — premiere a national award-winning play
- — national publicity
- — prestige of being selected for a national program
- — working directly with the playwright
- — introducing the playwright to the community
Theatres will be selected in August 2012.
