Double (XX) Fest 2.0 Selections Made!


We ended up with 321 plays total (a HEFTY reading feat for our tiny theatre) – narrowed that down to 67 finalists and out of that list were able to accommodate 18 total pieces for our festival this year. Competition was pretty stiff – congratulations to all who submitted and thank you SO much to our readers without whom we could NOT have made our selections in a mostly timely manner…it was the SNOW that prevented us from getting the word out on Jan 20th!

We were also able to pick a couple of alternates if, for some reason, we are unable to produce any of our initial selections.Plays will be running either the weekend of 4/26-29 or 5/3-6 2012 – let the games begin!
