PCSF hits 1500 plays

PCSF has hit a milestone! As of May 22, 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.

PCSF success stories


PCSF PlayOffs May 22 results

PCSF PlayOffs Round #2 showcased the work of Karl Schackne, L. Zephyr, Vonn Scott Bair, Lorraine Midanik, Jerome Joseph Gentes, Bridgette Dutta Portman, Gaetana Caldwell-Smith, Christopher Bernard, and Elizabeth Flanagan. The plays were extremely well-received by both matinee and evening audiences, who had the difficult assignment of choosing their three favorites.

Congratulations to the top two vote getters: Benched by Lorraine Midanik, and Murder by Bridgette Dutta Portman. These two plays will be included in PCSF's year-end production of short plays.

PlayOffs Round #3 will be held on July 31st. All PCSF members who have not participated in readings for Round 1 or 2 are eligible to put your name in the hat for the Round 3 drawing. The hat will open in late June. More information to come on Round 3 in a few weeks.
