The Woodstock Fringe Playwrights Unit is a playwriting workshop and laboratory, now in its ninth year. The core belief of the Playwrights unit is: The act of creation is an act of courage. A group of playwrights, composers, lyricists, book writers and actors assemble every other week to share and develop new work. The culture of the Playwrights Unit is one of community, nourishment, honor, mutual respect, and professionalism.
Eleven Playwrights Unit playwrights will be represented in the two programs of new short plays. A splendid company of actors, most local to the Hudson Valley, have come together to read this eclectic and exciting collection of new plays. The plays are funny, sad, outrageous, moving , witty and literate.
