The Playwrights Festival is held at Rutgers University every fall. It is comprised of stage readings and fully produced original works by the playwrights at the school. Both shows designed were modern pieces. One, Family Style (pictured at top) took place in a dinner somewhere in the USA, while the other, Lights over Philo (pictured at bottom), took place in Northern California. Both were small budget shows and were pulled from Rutgers University stock or shopped.
