QCT Virtual Playwrights Festival

June 13-14

Quincy Community Theatre’s Virtual Playwrights Festival premieres June 13 & 14!

Quincy Community Theatre’s first-ever Virtual Playwrights Festival is a two-night event featuring world premiere readings of original short plays, written by the teen and adults students of QCT’s Virtual Playwriting Class. These plays feature 36 volunteer actors from across the Midwest.
Both playwrights and actors have worked with QCT Head of Education Brendan Shea to craft these original works  in what will be presented as a “socially distanced” theatre experience.

The virtual festival can be viewed on the QCT YouTube Channel.
