MIAMI WRITES PROGRAM FOR NEW PLAYS 2023
Readings take place on March 3
Miami Writes is a MUR Theatre new plays development program dedicated to the fostering and production of new plays by student and local playwrights. It began in 2004. Past productions have included works by Brandon Berning, a student playwright, whose play A Painted Life won second place in the 36th annual Great Lakes Region Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival. Since then playwrights who have received Miami Writes readings include Cincinnati/Dayton notable writers Ruth Britt, Roger Collins, Doug Decatur, Susan Decatur, Alan Jozwiak, Karen Right, and many more. Bridget Ossmann’s original musical Teachers Left Behind received two full MURT workshop productions. Another Miami Writes play, first workshop as a MW play, Purple Paint received a Cincinnati Playwrights’ Initiative reading at The Aronoff Theatre in Cincinnati. Alyson West’s MW winner, The Texan, became a national award-winning film.
