UNF Department of English Presents 2014 Playwrights’ Project
Media Contact: Joanna Norris, Director
Department of Public Relations
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.

event, contact the Department of English at (904) 620-2273.
