Breaking Waves Festival Launches as Part of the San Diego Fringe Festival

11:14 AM 2014

Actors Alliance of San Diego has teamed up with San Diego Playwrights to launch a new workshop series with the goal of cultivating an environment for creative growth in San Diego. Seven playwrights have joined forces with eleven actors and three directors to present new plays in the Breaking Waves Festival at the San Diego Fringe Festival in 2014. Throughout the workshop series the groups are able to learn how improv and "play" can lead to the development of a play. Workshops will also include experiences by up and coming playwrights who have had their works produced at local and regional theatres and talks on the business of "showbiz". The workshops will culminate in the newest edition to the San Diego International Fringe Festival...the Breaking Waves Festival.
