Each year in March, a producer selects plays written by our members to be produced in our annual festival in late May/early June.

These short comedies and dramas are performed by Boston-area actors. Each play is self-produced by the playwright.

Awards are presented for Best Director, Best Actress, Best Actor, and Best Play.
