|Recurring Event (See all)
The two events are in different locations -- the first at Greenly Center and the second in the Theatre Laboratory.

In the annual Plays in Bloom Residency, Bloomsburg University students and recent alums will collaborate with a guest professional playwright in a week-long development of a full-length play then participate in a festival of short new plays written by student and alum playwrights. The staged readings of each of these plays are a chance for general audiences to respond to the plays-in-progress. Each reading will include a guided post-play discussion about the plays.
