2017 Playwrights and Artists Festival

When we look at a piece of art each person has a different interpretation of what they see. That is the beauty of art and the challenge to our playwrights. Each year we take three works of art and ask writers to write a play as they are moved or inspired by the artwork. We blind-read the submissions, select the best and produce them. The art is exhibited, we perform the play and ask the audience for feedback. It is our annual mixed media event that draws inquisitive art and theatre lovers to KNOW.

Thank you to all the playwrights who submitted this year! The chosen play’s will soon be posted on the website.

Below are the artworks chosen this year.
