Starting tonight and running every night through Saturday, Centre Stage in downtown Greenville is hosting its tenth annual New Play Festival. The New Play Festival is designed to showcase and adjust the writing of a small handful of chosen scripts selected from hundreds of submitted entries nationwide throughout the summer. I love all of downtown Greenville’s theaters and Centre Stage is my personal favorite for a lot of reasons, but I don’t know if any of the other theaters do anything quite like this – particularly for free. It’s a great opportunity to see a script being tweaked, learned, and growing through a live audience reading. The audience also actively participates by asking questions and giving crtical feedback after the performances and helping determine which playwright will get a check for funding their production.
All shows start at 7 PM, and all shows are free. You can’t beat free. Welcome to Greenville, home of more free live entertainment than a football stadium full of toddlers with energy drinks.
Tonight’s play is titled “Goodnight Sunshine,” written by Terence Patrick Hughes & directed by Allen Evans.
Tomorrow is “The Retirement Plan,” written by Robin Pond & directed by Michele Labar.
Friday, “The Iris Incident,” written by Amy Lanasa & directed by Laura Spencer.
Saturday’s play is “The Same Life Over,” written by Mark Medoff & directed by Ellen Jones.
