Directors Gathering (DG) Fellows + InterAct Core Playwrights and The Foundry @ PlayPenn

6 local directors.  6 local playwrights.  6 local new play collaborations.  Join Directors Gathering (DG), InterAct, and The Foundry@PlayPenn as they host the (DG) Fellows and InterAct Core and The Foundry Playwrights for two Sundays of visually rendered readings as part of InterAct’s June-A-Palooza!

Each director + playwright team has been paired together by (DG), InterAct, and The Foundry.  These pairings arrived through the artists' unique voices and their interests in developing a piece that felt ready to the playwright for a director's visual/conceptual eye and potential on-feet work.
