The Lawrence Headquarters Branch of the Mercer County Library System will be hosting their annual PlayFest on Saturday, April 25, 2020. For the twelfth consecutive year, local directors will stage script-in-hand performances of one-act plays. This annual event is designed to showcase local original theater. Plays should be ten minutes in length, with a maximum of five actors. Playwrights should be of high school age or older and reside or work in the Delaware Valley. Submissions are limited to a maximum of two per playwright.

Playwrights, amateur or professional, should submit their plays by Friday, January 10, 2020. Scripts can be emailed as a Word document attachment to or may be brought to the Lawrence Headquarters Branch Library reference desk. Please include two title pages: one with the play title only and the other with play title and name, address, phone, and email address of the playwright. The playwright’s name should not appear in the script. For additional information please call Ann Kerr, 609-883-8292.
