8th Annual Festival of Shorts at Driftwood Players July 7-9

Friday, June 23, 2017

Edmonds Driftwood Players is pleased to present our popular 8th Annual Festival of Shorts.

Eight great short plays were selected from over 400 submissions from around the world.

The finalists were chosen through "blind" readings by our selection committee. 

These never before produced shorts will make their debut on the stage at the Wade James Theater in Edmonds. 

The theme of this year's festival is "Unintended Consequences".

The selected playwrights will exhibit their most innovative, hilarious, or profound 15 minutes of stage-time, with actors and directors chosen through Driftwood auditions. At each of the four performances, the audience selects their favorite and on Sunday, a panel of esteemed judges will select an overall festival winner.

Festival producer and Executive Producer of the TIPs (Theater of Intriguing Possibilities) Series, Diane Jamieson, is thrilled with this year's submissions and can't wait for everyone to join us this year! Our Festival of Shorts closes out our 2016-17 Season and our TIPs Series.
