Our newest featured list comes from playwright Greg Lam, who attended the Midwest Dramatists Festival in Iolanthe, KS last September: "I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I met a lot of great playwrights and sat in on dozens of interesting ten-minute play readings with insightful discussions. It’s impossible to see more than half of the 48 or so plays presented at the conference, but I did my best. Here are my favorites of the ones I managed to see. They're playfully heartbreaking, infuriatingly stunning, effortlessly hilarious, intensely shocking, harrowingly hopeful, bleakly intriguing, and manically endearing." Enjoy!
