Performance Notes

Join us online for the 26th annual PlayGround Festival of New Works kick-off event, featuring an opening panel with PlayGround Artistic Leaders Jim Kleinmann, Annie Stuart, Stephanie Prentice and Katja Rivera in conversation with PlayGround playwright alumnus (and 2022 Will Glickman Award winner) Ruben Grijalva on the state of the field and plans for the future.

This is a general admission performance - seating is on a first come, first serve basis, unless the patron has selected “preferred seating”, in which case seats will be reserved under the patron’s name and held until the start of the performance.

Seating generally begins 15 minutes prior to start of performance.
