Words Cubed

Words Cubed is part of the Festival’s new play program that seeks to nurture and develop openly submitted, solicited, and commissioned plays by providing a professionally supported platform for readings, workshops, and fully realized productions as part of an ongoing commitment to create a diverse body of work.

Playwrights spend a week at the Festival during our summer season in rehearsals with directors, actors, and stage managers as they refine and rework their plays. At the end of the week, the revised plays are presented as staged readings or workshops, followed by a lively, interactive discussion between the playwright, actors, and audience.

Titles are currently in the process of being determined. 2024 performance dates are:
Title A: August 9, 10, 21, and 23
Title B: August 16, 17, 22, and 24

Tickets are $10 at the Ticket Office.

Submissions for 2024

As of 11/2/23, we have reached the limit of 200 submitted plays. Please note that we are no longer accepting any more at this time.
