The Baltimore Playwrights Festival announces its monthly public meeting to be held at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, February 19, 2013, at Fells Point Corner Theater, 251 South Ann Street, Baltimore, MD 21231, 410-276-7837. After the meeting, at 8:30 p.m., there will be a staged reading of The Desert, a one-act play by Jacquelyn Bengfort, followed by a discussion of the script with the playwright, director and actors. Both the meeting and the reading are free, and the general public and all BPF members are encouraged to attend.

Jacquelyn Bengfort weaves an intriguing tale that takes place several years after a near-apocalyptic weather event known as "The Desert" -- a set of twins recounts to their dinner guests the story of how their grandmother arrived ahead of the storm, bent on assuring their survival at any cost.

Jacquelyn spent eighteen years reading library books and staring out at the North Dakota prairies before departing for stranger shores. Currently based in Washington, D.C., her fiction has appeared in The Labyrinth and is forthcoming in Storm Cellar.

The Baltimore Playwrights Festival has presented over 282 productions by 173 playwrights at 27 different theaters. Our mission is to provide an environment that nurture the talents of Maryland and DC playwrights through public readings, discussions, critiques and workshopping of new plays. Our summer season is devoted to the presentation of these newly developed works to area audiences in cooperation with local area theaters. We are a volunteer-operated 501(c)3 organization, and welcome any and all participation. Get involved! Become a Member! Further information can be found at www.baltplayfest.org.
