Players Announces Winner of 2019 New Play Festival

Arts & Culture

SRQ DAILY MONDAY BUSINESS EDITION MONDAY AUG 26, 2019

The Players Centre for Performing Arts has announced Ron Pantello’s Damaged Goods as the winner of the 2019 New Play Festival. Once a year, local playwrights submit brand new, never-before-performed plays in an annual competition where audiences are given the opportunity to witness the birth of a brand-new play. Five plays are chosen then performed in readers-style theater by actors under the leadership of a local director with a talk-back following the show to help give the playwright some constructive criticism. One play is chosen as the winner and a year later, after a few revisions, is performed with full sets and costumes. This year, audiences chose Pantello’s tale of family drama in the fickle world of show business. Carole Kleinberg is on tap to continue with the process of re-writes and to direct the production set for August 4-9, 2020.
