MainStage - Returning in 2020


ShowOff! International Playwriting Festival is our subscribers' favorite, with drama and comedy,

Seven 10-minute plays all of them are world premiere plays. The audience votes for their favorite plays and after the ballots are tabulated, top three winners get cash prizes after the last performance. With nearly 300 entries each year from all over the world ... a team of readers selects reads and grades each play keeping the identity of the playwrights anonymous until the top 10 plays are selected.

As the audience you only see the top seven and nightly you will also hear one of our runner-up plays read as a "Readers Theater".
