Louise Heck-Rabi Playwriting Festival Presents Winners' Plays at Studio Theatre in Midtown
by BWW News Desk - Mar 7, 2016

Modern day playwrights face more than the occasional writer's block, they face pretty tough odds of achieving the gratification that comes with having their work produced. As composed by Gwydion Suilebhan, a Washington D.C. playwright and representative to the Dramatists Guild, there are an estimated 10,000 playwrights in the United States writing an average of one new play per year. Of the plays written, an estimated maximum of 10% will actually premiere on stage. This leaves more than 90% of plays per year that will never know the warmth of the spotlight. When three students from Wayne State University's Maggie Allesee Department of Theatre and Dance were crowned as the winners of the 2016 Louise Heck-Rabi Dramatic Writing Festival they beat those odds. In addition to cash prizes, each recipient received the chance to have their award-winning script produced on stage at Midtown Detroit's Studio Theatre.   (more...)
