Spotlight continues its annual showcase of new one-act plays by the winners of its summer contest for young playwrights. The first Spotlight Playfest in spring of 2021 combined drama, hilarious comedy, and even a spooky period piece all in one entertaining night of theatre. Three young writers and three college-aged directors added produced plays to their résumés, and the casts of the plays experienced the tour de force of playing multiple roles.

Descriptions of the plays for Playfest 2021-’22 will be posted here after winners of the young playwrights’ competition are announced on Aug. 14. (The contest deadline is July 31—read about the competition and how to enter!)
