Plays In Progress is a unique program fostering new works by women playwrights.
Each Spring playwrights are invited to submit previously unproduced plays which are read and scored by a team of readers. One hundred and fifty plays were submitted from across the country. We are pleased to announce five winning scripts and playwrights. The Inside Child by Claire Caviglia will be presented as a table reading, Strong Face by Philana Omorotionmwan will be presented as a concert reading, and Mama’s Eggnog by Angela Stern, The Buddha’s Wife by Mary Poindexter McLaughlin, and The Golden Hour by Elizabeth Nelson will all receive workshop level productions during the Sixth Annual Athena Project Festival in March 2018.
