    Our audiences at Campfire Theatre Festival were delighted by ¡Mamágua!. With surprises at every turn and continuous defiance of regular form, I was in stitches by seeing Alberdi's smashing of common structure and his use of unconventional devices. ¡Mamágua!: you've got to read this script. Thank you, Sebastián for your work!

    Everyone fights to survive in the desert. I was captured by Andrew Rosendorf's script from page one. This script holds in itself an earnestness that you don't see so much with scripts centering on our Southern Border. Yes, it's inherently political, but this show focuses on the humanity in such a nuanced way that you put your political identity aside. Refuge shined at Campfire Theatre Festival and gave us something special. Thank you, Andrew for your work!

    Are you special or are you not? To what degree do you go to believe in your uniquity? Our audiences at Campfire Theatre Festival were delighted from the very beginning of this dark psychic comedy. The world of Crystal Plains is charming and delightful. Thank you, Jacqueline for writing this script!

    I was immediately drawn to this script from page one. The Song shines as an incredibly powerful character and one that, in some fashion, we've all met before. Our audiences at Campfire Theatre Festival were captivated by Shualee's script. I have half a mind to think that we all went home and listened to our own "Candle's Out" while taking a trip down memory lane. Thank you, Shualee!
  • Megan and the Bear Go Camping (To Solve Their Problems)

    Megan and the Bear Go Camping (To Solve Their Problems) is an incredibly evocative script. Zoe explores the aftershocks of trauma in unconventionally delightful ways. Our audiences at Campfire Theatre Festival were captivated by Zoe's use of character and magical realism. This script will make you laugh, make you cry, and make your heart go "that's me too!".

    Family becomes much more than those that share blood in this brightly earnest script. Caridad Svich's use of song, poetry, multiple languages, and futbol (among other ingredients) provides a glorious soundscape and atmosphere. Guapa is a story bursting off the page. Goalllllll!
