Quincy Community Theatre's Playwrights Festival is June 13th and 14th! Watch free from your couch, here are the details...

Quincy Community Theatre was forced to push their entire 2020 season to 2021 due to the coronavirus crisis, but they have been getting very creative to keep theatre alive during this time when we aren't allowed to gather in large crowds. One of the ways that Quincy Community Theatre is keeping performance alive is virtually, and this coming up is their Playwrights Festival June 13th and 14th, a chance for you to watch actors do a reading of some original plays from the Quincy Community Theatre playwrighting class. On the Facebook event for the Playwrights Festival they say...

"A first of its kind, the Virtual Playwrights Festival is a two-night event featuring world premiere readings of original short plays, written by the students of QCT's Virtual Playwriting Class. Over the past four weeks, two groups of student playwrights (one of teens and the other of adults) have worked with QCT Head of Education Brendan Shea to craft original plays inspired by a weekly writing challenge."

I really hope that these virtual performances can continue to happen even when life returns to the "new normal" whenever that may be, I think it's such a unique way to create art and give people more opportunities to be involved with the fantastic Quincy Community Theatre.
