If you're looking to get your theater fill this weekend, the Playwrights Festival 2014 at Mill Mountain Theatre's Waldron Stage should take care of it pretty easily.
On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Hollins University and MMT will present 10 new plays for your enjoyment and it's all free. I'm one of the judges for the festival (no, I can't 'splain it, Lucy, except that I was asked) and even I, who really love the theater, will be in danger of an overdose by Sunday evening when the final play runs at 8 p.m.
This all starts with two plays Friday night beginning at 6 and continues Saturday and Sunday with a play every three hours beginning at 11 a.m. The writers for these plays are coming from all over the country to see how their work stacks up against other works.
Could be a lot of fun.
