Founder and producing artistic director Kristen Coury introduced the festival as a way to support playwrights in the otherwise solitary writing process. “If we aren’t contributing to the canon of American theater, who is?” she said earlier this week before dashing off to rehearsals. (Coury is directing two of the plays.) “It could be that the playwrights have never even heard their work read out loud before.”
