Each year in March, a producer selects plays written by our members to be produced in our annual festival in June. These short comedies and dramas are performed by Boston-area actors. Each play has its own director, selected by the playwright. Audience members vote for their favorites after each performance. These Audience Choice awards are presented for Best Director, Best Actress, Best Actor, and Best Play.
