Driftwood Theatre commissions three playwrights annually who, supported through a development process by our Company Dramaturg, create new, short plays to be presented as part of The Bard’s Bus Tour. 

Participating playwrights are supported through one-on-one meetings and participate in bi-monthly group meetings geared toward fellowship and professional development.

2022 Beyond the Bard Playwrights
