Three new winning one-act plays from 9 Midwest states, presented as staged readings. This year our Guest Playwright is Deanna Jent (whose wonderful play Falling was fully staged last fall at Heartland). Made possible by the Town of Normal Harmon Arts Grant and sponsored by Paul and Sandra Harmon.
About the NPH Project
New Plays from the Heartland (NPH) provides Midwestern playwrights a chance to share their original plays with residents of Central Illinois. Heartland Theatre Company solicits new, never-produced one-act plays from writers in nine Midwestern States: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin.
Play submissions are judged for excellence by a panel of judges who review all of the submitted plays to choose the top six entries. The six finalists are then sent without identification to a final judge, an experienced playwright with national prominence, who chooses the final three plays for a staged reading at our theatre.
Heartland Theatre Company is dedicated to providing playwrights a forum for recognition in our theatre and our community.
Performances July 17, 18, 19 - 2015 with Open Forum on Playwriting July 16
