The plays and playwrights for the 2005 Summer Play Festival are:
Wildlife by Victor Lodato No directors or casting have been announced.
In 2004, the festival covered production costs of all the shows, making it a much cushier environment for artists than, say, the New York International Fringe Festival, in which participants pay a nonrefundable $500 fee and pay for all aspects of mounting the show, save renting a space. Additionally, the festival held no rights to the shows at any times.
The 2005 affair will run July 5-31. Submissions were accepted from Oct. 1, 2004 to Jan 15, 2005. All submissions were made via spfnyc.com only (one per writer). The first SPF fest saw several shows sell out. Two of the plays presented, Brooke Berman's Sam & Lucy and Gary Sunshine's Sweetness were given further workshops at the National Theatre Studio in London.
