            The University of North Florida’s Department of English will present its annual Playwrights’ Project, a showcase of original plays written and directed by UNF students in the Playwrights’ Project workshop, at 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 6, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 7, in the John E. Matthews Jr. Computer Science Building, Building 15, Room 1303, on the UNF campus. This event is free and open to the public.

 

            The 2014 Playwrights’ Project will feature five one-act plays on a variety of topics, ranging from political ethics and adulthood to chronic and mental illnesses and even robots. The cast will comprise UNF students and members of the Jacksonville community.

 

            Offered every fall by the Department of English, CRW4424: Playwrights’ Project is an intensive playwriting and playmaking workshop. Under the supervision of Dr. Pam Monteleone, UNF associate professor of English, aspiring playwrights not only write a one-act play on a topic of their choosing but also have the unique opportunity to bring their scripts to life. At the end of the semester, students produce the stage-worthy plays, which culminate in two performances.

 

            For more information about the event, contact the Department of English at (904) 620-2273.
