Every year, we receive over 200 new scripts from playwrights all over the country to participate in JETFest--The Seymour J. and Ethel S. Frank Festival of New Plays. Each playwright receives a professional reading on our stage and a cash award. This year's festival is underwritten by Mary Lou Zieve and Steven A. Showfer.
You can be part of the process of professional play development. JETFest is open to the public, and your feedback is encouraged and essential to the playwrights as they continue to refine their work for full productions on the professional stage.
Each reading is followed by an audience discussion. Playwrights are invited to attend.
