Conference Artist Lineup 2017

This year's Conference playwrights represent a range of cultural and career experience, contributing to the creation of a dynamic and diverse community that will gather in Philadelphia this July.  We're confident that the support we offer this year's Conference playwrights will lead to full productions of each of their plays, as has been the case with 60 of the 100 plays developed by PlayPenn since 2005. 

Reservations to the Conference Readings will open on July 1.  
We hope to see you this summer!
