Repertory East Playhouse Artistic Director, Ovington Michael Owston had this to say about the Page 2 Stage Playwright’s Competition, “This is truly a unique and inventive evening of theatre. At one point classics such as A Street Car Named Desire and Death of a Salesman were considered “new works”. You never know what can happen when a new piece of theatre finally reaches an audience. It’s a magical journey to watch unfold.”
The Page 2 Stage Playwright’s Competition falls under the critically acclaimed 81 Series and is designed to foster and enhance the skills of America ’s future scribes. The 81
Series is funded through a Community Services Grant by the City of Santa Clarita .
Directed by Keone Fuqua, who recently appeared in REP’s production of Shakespeare in the Park, Conflict features local talent Bill Quinn, Erin Rivlin-Sakata, Johnny Schwinn, Bonnie Sludikoff, Eric Stein and REP newcomer Jim Willsey.
