Works by Hollins Playwrights Highlight New Voices Playfest, May 1-2

Playwright's Lab

Hollins playwrights Meredith Dayna Levy, Wendy-Marie Martin, and Anne G’Fellers Mason will be featured at Atlantic Stage’s Fourth Annual New Voices Playfest in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Readings take place on Friday, May 1, beginning at 6 p.m. and Saturday, May 2, starting at noon.

Levy and Mason are pursuing their Master of Fine Arts degrees through the Playwright’s Lab at Hollins University, while Martin completed her M.F.A. in the playwriting program in 2014.

The goal of the New Voices Playfest is to discover and present through a weekend of readings some of the most dynamic and exciting new work for the stage. Atlantic Stage, a professional theatre, solicited new work in the categories of ten-minute plays, one-act plays, and full-length plays over the past year. All submitted work must have been unproduced at the time of submission, and playwrights may submit one play per category.

The plays are blind submissions and selected by a panel of guest professional readers.

All readings are free and open to the public. Check the website for a complete list of readings, times and other events.

The New Voices Playfest is administered by Kevin Ferguson, playwright-in-residence, resident dramaturg, and literary manager at Atlantic Stage. He is also a graduate of the Playwright’s Lab at Hollins.

Atlantic Stage’s mission is to enhance the cultural landscape of the Myrtle Beach area by providing quality theatrical productions of classical, contemporary, and new works that are entertaining and enlightening.
