The festival, produced by Elizabeth Frankel (who joined the Alley from New York's Public Theatre this year), is an exciting opportunity to be a part of the "middle step" in the birth of a new play.
The festival consisted of six new plays, all at different stages of development.
I was fortunate enough to get to be in the workshop production of Miller, Mississippi, a new Southern Gothic that spans over 20 years, written by Boo Killebrew and directed by Lee Sunday Evans.
Working so closely with the playwright on this remarkable new play has been a rare gift, as has being a part of the Festival as a whole.
Watch for Miller, Mississippi at a theatre in near you, because this is one southren ghost story that has some serious theatrical promise.
