Company of Fools to Present First Annual Virtual Play Festival THE DARE TO FAIL FEST

Are You DTF?

Company of Fools will present its first annual virtual play festival. The Dare to Fail Fest! (DTFFest) is comprised of five 10-minute plays (out of over 50 submissions) selected by a CoF committee, headed by Literary Director, Cameron Cueva Clarke and Director of Motley Endeavors, Clare Solly. These works all revolve around what is to "dare to fail gloriously."

The selected shows:

Wanted: Scapegoat, No Experience Necessary

This festival is free to view for all and will premiere Friday, February 24th at 7 p.m. (ET) on the Company of Fools' YouTube channel.
