New Works Wednesdays
Welcome to New Works Wednesdays --- the exciting new (pandemic driven) addition to the Todd McNerney National Playwriting Awards. This Spring we will be reading eight of the 2020 finalist plays via Zoom every Wednesday evening.

In 2006 an anonymous donor created the Todd McNerney Playwriting Award to honor faculty member and former Chair Todd McNerney and to recognize the excellence of College of Charleston student playwrights. The initial award was created to be awarded to a student-written 10-minute play and continues to this day. In 2009, the same generous donor provided additional resources to create a second award which focuses on full-length plays and is open to playwrights from across the nation. The donor and the award support the development of new plays and raise awareness of the College and its Theatre and Dance Department's commitment to new work.

The schedule (subject to change) of the readings is as follows ....

March 17 - The Tiger Play by Anne Phelan
March 24 - Dead Air by Greg Jones Ellis
March 31 - Firewater by Samantha Marchant
April 7 - Of Men and Cars by Jim Geoghan
