NW Playwright’s Fest: The Short List, Thurs & Fri @ TLT

Last year, I strapped on homemade hairy armpits for the NW Playwright’s Festival of New Works–This year, acting in one of the 10-minute plays on the 2009 Short List won’t involve synthetic fur and a barbie doll.

At least not for me. You never can tell with the short works.
(Come on… who didn’t love the TaterTots?)


The 2009 Northwest Fest!

A festival of new works created from the rain-dampened brains of real, genuine Northwest Playwrights. The festival is well on its way, but there’s still lots of great new plays to see!
