Post PPF

Actors Matthew Humphreys, Rebecca Mozo, Mandy Siegfried, Josh Radnor and Sarah Rafferty at the 2010 Pacific Playwrights Festival.

They began to arrive on Tuesday, April 20, and by the following Monday they were gone, but the results of their efforts will be seen in the months and years to come at theatres across the county.

They are the nearly 50 writers, directors, actors and dramaturgs whose talent infused SCR’s 13th annual Pacific Playwrights Festival. 7 Plays in 3 Days was the tag line, and whether playgoers attended some or all (two full productions and five readings), they were treated to extraordinary new work.

More than 30 theatres—from New York to Louisville, from Seattle to San Diego—were represented at this year’s festival. Besides industry guests, Orange County playgoers continued to attend the festival in large numbers as they have for 13 seasons, filling the Segerstrom and Argyros stages and selling out the Nicholas Studio.

According to Festival Co-Director John Glore, “The enthusiasm and dedication of everyone involved—artists, staff and audience—gives PPF its extraordinary energy and accounts more than anything else for its ongoing success. Our thanks to all.”
