2014 Southampton International Theatre Workshops & Festival

New for 2014

The Festival

We are very proud to announce The Festival.  A new experience this summer, The Festival is a chance for talented new playwrights and more seasoned veterans to have work performed in organized readings.  These reading will run throughout the 12 days and will be supplemented by master classes with some of our outstanding theatre faculty.  5-day Playwriting participants may have the option to stay on for an additional week to be a part of the festival.  



Application Process

We've finally made the change to online applications.  And this year, we've made it even easier, because we made it free.

Changes to Your Stay

This year the Southampton International Theatre Workshops and Festival has made some changes in order to better meet the needs of our participants.

In years past, the conference has included three meals a day and housing in your conference fees.  We have found that if we remove these charges we allow our participants greater savings and flexibility in their choices while on campus. 

Rest assured the conference still offers food and housing.  The university dining hall will be open for a la carte meals. And participants can stay in our air-conditioned dormitories this summer.  You will reserve your dorms separately after you are accepted.
