Summer New Works Festival

Summer New Works Festival

The Ojai Playwrights Conference (OPC), one of the most acclaimed new play developmental programs in the country, celebrates it 21st season with an exceptional program of playwrights, new play workshops and special performance events from August 5 through 12, 2018 in Ojai, California.

Under the direction of Artistic Director/Producer Robert Egan, carefully selected playwrights from across the country join together for an intensive two-week, in-residence workshop program that culminates in OPC’s popular public workshop series known as the “Summer New Works Festival.”

“OPC’s mission is to develop unproduced plays of artistic excellence from diverse writers – both emerging and established – by promoting creative freedom and bold experimentation through a development process that values writers who focus on the compelling social, political and cultural issues of our time,” says Egan.

From nearly 500 new play submissions reviewed this year, we are pleased to announce that the eleven playwrights below have been chosen to participate in our summer program:
