Plays in Bloom: Staged Readings of New Short Plays by Students and Alums
Staged Readings of short new plays by Students and Alums
In the annual Plays in Bloom Residency, Bloomsburg University students and recent alums first collaborate with a guest professional playwright in a week-long development of a full-length play and then participate in a festival of short new plays written by student and alum playwrights. The staged readings of each of these plays is a chance for general audiences to respond to the plays-in-progress. Each reading will include a guided post-play discussion about the plays.
