Orange County Playwrights Alliance

Just another weblog

It’s a common question. One often asked in show business. Well, to answer it, here is a roundup of what OCPA playwrights have been up to locally and nationally.

Lynn Wells Nelson‘s The Old Bird – a 2010 winner of Long Beach Playhouse’s New Works Festival – was just named Audience Favorite and Official Winner of Dezart Performs’ third annual Play Reading Series. Dezart Performs will produce Lynn’s play this fall in Palm Springs.

Robert Riemer‘s Sotto Voce is up and running at ZJU Theatre Group in North Hollywood.  You can catch the play every Saturday at 8:30pm through June 11.

Arthur Kraft’s drama Goat continues its five-week run at Oxnard’s Elite Theatre Company through May 29.

Ken La Salle’s short play Persecution Complex appears in Theatre of NOTE’s “Just the Tip” late-night show through May 21 in Hollywood.

Tira Palmquist’s Off to Summer was recently staged in the Pikes Peak Arts Council’s 6 Women Playwriting Theatre Festival in Colorado Springs.

This Life or the Next by John Franceschini and Uncomfortable Sex by Lorin Howard were just produced in New Voices Playwrights Theatre‘s Spring Voices production at the Empire Theatre in Santa Ana.

John Franceschini‘s It’s Only a Minute a Guy (which opened our March Discoveries event) was just produced in Stage Door Productions‘ Fourth Annual Original One-Act Festival in Fredricksburg, VA.

North Hollywood’s Road Theatre Company recently presented Frank Farmer‘s Aging with Grace in its Road Signs reading series.

That’s all for now – more to follow.
