Fresh off the sold out run of their mainstage production this past June, EPIC Players presents a neuro-diverse summer playwriting festival. This 3-day play festival will include readings, staged works, and selected scenes from several plays. This is a cumulative project of a semester long playwriting class led by experienced playwrights. This play festival includes a variety of genres, many centered around a neuro-diverse experience and written by playwrights living with neuro-diversities.
