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 new short plays that take place 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 Bloomsburg University students and directed by advanced directing students and faculty from the Division of Theatre and Dance.

The Digital Program for The Screen Plays (PDF) is available here.

Please note that The Screen Plays contain mature content and language.
