THE SEVEN is one of the nation's premiere short works festivals. It features seven fully produced world premieres, utilizing seven different directors and a professional ensemble cast. The scripts are reads by a jury of theatre professionals (blindly, without any identification of the playwright) and the seven highest scoring scripts will be produced. The overall Jury Award-winner will be awarded the Andaluz Prize, and will receive transportation to/from and lodging at the festival. The Audience Choice Award-winner will be announced on June 12th. Additionally, THE 2nd SEVEN, a public reading of the plays that finished 8th-14th in the jury scoring, will take place on Monday, June 11th.
