"Hurts so Good and A New Play by Neil Simon and more set for WSU Studio Theatre's Heck-Rabi Play Festival, now thru 3/9"

Since 2000, the Studio Theatre has hosted the Louise Heck-Rabi Dramatic Playwriting One Act Festival, encouraging young playwrights to submit their original works. Each year, 6-7 semi-finalists are chosen out of all submissions. The plays are then read at a Workshop, where they are critiqued by judges. Three finalists win a scholarship as well as the opportunity to produce their play in front of a live audience. Each winning playwright has a chance to work with a student director and student performers to realize their productions on the stage. Running today, Feb. 28 through March 9, audience members can see this year's selected student plays: “Hurts So Good” by Carollette Phillips and Edmund Alyn Jones, “A New Play” by Neil Simon by Dave Toomey, and Chiseled by Laura Heikkinen.
