Cygnet Theatre Announces Bill & Judy Garrett Finish Line Commission

Kudos to Cygnet Theatre and Judy and Bill Garrett for supporting new play development, and congratulations to recipients Nathan Alan Davis and Rachael VanWormer! Rachael is an alumni of our playwriting programs (both Plays by Young Writers and Play by Play), and we were delighted to have partnered with Cygnet on a workshop reading of Rachael's play as a part of Playwrights in Process in 2014. We are excited to see how the play has developed!

Public readings for both playwrights will be held November 11th and 12th. For more information, click here.
