The 2018 Rockford New Play Festival will present a staged reading of six new ten-minute plays.

In its fourth year, the purpose of the Rockford New Play Festival is to give established and aspiring playwrights from the Rockford area the opportunity to have their work presented professionally to the public alongside the work of national and international playwrights. 

This year's Theme is 'A DREAM EXPLODES!'

In 1951, Langston Hughes wrote the poem "Harlem" which explores several possibilities of what might happen when a dream is left unfulfilled, including the famous closing line: "...does it explode?" Given today's social and political uncertainty, we invite playwrights to explore what happens when "A Dream Explodes!”
