2024 MODERN WORKS FESTIVAL
 

September 4-8, 2024

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

Back for the fifth year and taking place at Urbanite Theatre, the Modern Works Festival is a five-day playwriting contest, reading festival, and celebration of women in theatre.

 

Three finalists will be selected by a panel of play readers to present their work as a staged reading during the Festival. The Festival will culminate in an audience roundtable discussion, and Festival Passholders will have the opportunity to cast a vote for their favorite of the three works, awarding the winner a prize of $3,200!

In addition to staged readings from the three finalists, Festival Passholders can enjoy tickets to the opening and closing events of the Festival, panel discussions with women in theatre, guest playwright discussions, and much more.
