PCSF playoffs results
Round Two of the 2017 PCSF PlayOffs was held on May 21, and showcased staged readings of nine 10-minute plays by PCSF members.
The playwrights included: Roberta Morris, Annette Roman, Dana Sack, Elizabeth Flanagan, Sophia Naylor, Marsha Roberts, Kristen Anundsen, Alyson Mead, and Sunil Maulik.
Both the matinee and evening performances were well attended, and the audiences found it difficult to narrow down the field of nine plays to vote for just three. When the ballots were all counted, the top two choices of the audience (that earned a spot in the full production next November) were:
Congratulations to these two playwrights on being 2017 Round Two audience picks, and to all our playwrights for producing such a wonderful collection of 10 minute plays.
And mark your calendars now. Round Three of the 2017 PCSF PlayOffs will be on July 16. The "hat" for Round Three will open in mid-June for the drawing of nine names for that round. More info will be posted on the website and newsletter as the date nears.
Thank you again to Directors Carol Eggers and Paul Seliga, as well as to our talented cast: Marisa Darabi, Miyoko Sakatani, Nicole Martin, Dan Wilson, Max Seijas, and Keith Jefferds.
