Plays in Bloom Residency: Staged Readings of New Plays

May 24 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

In the annual Plays in Bloom Residency, Bloomsburg University students and
recent alums will collaborate with a guest professional playwright in a
week-long development of a full-length play then participate in a festival
of short new plays written by student and alum playwrights. The staged
readings of each of these plays are a chance for general audiences to
respond to the plays-in-progress. Each reading will include a guided
post-play discussion about the plays.
