Playbill Pride   34 More Works by LGBTQIA+ Artists to Keep an Eye On
 
As Pride Month comes to an end, look for more work from these writers
Pride Plays logo hr

The 2020 Pride Plays festival comes to a close after four successful primetime digital presentations of queer works by queer playwrights and the Playbill Pride Spectacular concert, as well as 11 new works that enjoyed private developmental readings. Going one step further in lifting LGBTQIA+ voices, Pride Plays also produced “Pride Pieces,” an Instagram series showcasing 34 works submitted to Pride Plays. The 2020 festival was packed with new perspectives and new stories—and there is always room for more. Every work produced by Pride Plays, from mainstage to development to Pride Pieces, showcases LGTBQIA+ stories by LGBTQIA+ writers.

For producers, artistic directors, directors: Consider these works when you look for your next project. For audiences: Keep tabs on these artists and pieces. You can say you’re ahead of the curve.
