PCSF wins TBA Award for Best Anthology Production

PCSF is overjoyed to have received a TBA award for Outstanding Production of an Anthology for "Sheherezade's Last Tales," the festival of short plays we produced December 2015. Props to producers Jerome Joseph Gentes and Bridgette Dutta Portman, the playwrights, and everyone else involved with the production.


Publicity Guide updated

The PCSF Publicity Guide (PDF), a basic guide for getting audiences for your readings and performances, has been updated to 2016. Thank you to Laylah Muran de Assereto for her work on this helpful work.


PCSF hits 1500 plays

PCSF has hit a milestone! As of May 22, 2016, PCSF has brought 1500 plays to the stage in the form of public readings and productions. Some of these plays have gone on to readings and productions elsewhere.

We are proud of our record supporting Bay Area playwrights in honing their work, and we are proud of and grateful to the playwrights, directors, actors, volunteers, donors, and others who have brought us this far and are bringing us into the future of theatre.
