Arts & Culture

SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY MAR 22, 2019

Florida Studio Theatre has announced that, in association with the National New Play Network (NNPN), it will produce and host the NNPN Women in Playwriting Festival this spring. Part of FST’s Sarasota Festival of New Plays, this three-week Festival will take place throughout April and May, with staged readings of the featured plays in FST’s Keating Theatre on April 26, May 3 and May 10, and in FST’s Bowne’s Lab Theatre on April 24.

The four playwrights featured in this Festival—Sarah Bierstock, Minita Gandhi, Jacqueline Goldfinger, and Lia Romeo—will each come to Sarasota for a week of rehearsals and development sessions with FST’s artistic staff. At the end of each week, a staged reading of their play will be performed, followed by a talkback session in which the playwrights will receive feedback.

The series of staged readings is free and open to the public, but reservations are required. Reservations can be made online at the website below, by phone at (941) 366-9000 or by visiting the FST Box Office.
