Our New Play Reading Series is the hottest ticket in town!
If you thought you knew everything about Dorset Theatre Festival, we invite you to think again by attending one of our nationally-renowned New Play Readings. New plays begin their lives at the Festival, and a new generation of playwrights tests their voices here before having their plays produced on Broadway and beyond. We are extremely proud that we have hosted over 70 playwrights in the past 6 years, developing over 90 new works, 18 of which have gone on to receive full productions or further development at some of the most prestigious venues in the country. The Dorset Theatre Festival is redefining the landscape of regional theatre. We invite you to join us in growing new plays!
Dorset Theatre Festival is thrilled to have support from the National Endowment for the Arts, The Shubert Foundation and Harold and Mimi Steinberg Trust and the Richard Rodgers Foundation.
So Hot. So Cool. Tickets on sale now.
