The Screen Plays

Dramatic Stories & Digital (Dis)connections
A virtual performance festival of six original plays written and performed by Bloomsburg University students.

Student playwrights from Theatre and Creative Writing have written short plays set in a video/digital environment (real or invented). The truthful circumstances of their environment make it necessary that their meeting is by way of digital screens. The plays are acted by students and directed by advanced directing students and faculty from the Division of Theatre and Dance.

The six original plays premiered over two nights on Wednesday, November 11 at 7:30pm and Thursday, November 12 at 7:30pm. On Friday, November 13 at 7:30pm the Conversation Series premiered--a backstage listen about the process from the playwrights, directors, designers, and dramaturgs on the plays.
