We are so excited to feature FOUR new plays this spring in our Spring Play Dates.
Supported and produced under the auspices of the Provincetown Theater’s Stephen Mindich Literary Project,
this year’s roster of four new American plays includes works by Cape Cod writers Racine Oxtoby and Linda Fiorella, a new musical composed and written by Jon Richardson, and a new play from New York writer Sarah Schulman, whose The Lady Hamlet was developed in the Play Dates series in 2019 and received its world premiere at the Provincetown Theater last summer. The Lady Hamlet recently won Best New Play of 2022 in the Boston Regional Broadwayworld.com Awards.
