For nearly 10 years, Cygnet Theatre has been committed to celebrating human stories through the medium of live theatre. This fall, in collaboration with Playwrights Project, Cygnet Theatre is proud to announce the second annual Playwrights in Process: New Play Festival featuring four new plays by playwrights Rachael VanWormer, Ross Tedford Kendall, Robert John Ford and Todd Goodlett, each of whom is a Southern California playwright or a writer with strong regional connections. The four winners were selected from 54 submissions from across the country.

This festival introduces San Diego playgoers to new works and offers a series of workshops designed to introduce curious audiences to the art of new play development. An exciting feature of the three-day festival at the Old Town Theatre is facilitated talk-backs with each playwright following the readings.
