San Juan Island playwrights — are you ready to put words on the page and pages on the stage?

The 2021 San Juan Community Theatre Playwrights Festival kicks off in May. 

The theater is thrilled to present this year’s live festival as part of our outdoor summer season at the San Juan County Fairgrounds.

This year’s festival brings a new challenge to writers: original solo pieces, or monologues.

We are excited beyond belief to return to live performances and also continue to keep our community’s health and safety in mind during the pandemic.

The playwrights festival Zoom orientation is 2 p.m., Saturday, May 22.

A free, in-person solo performance writing workshop is 2 p.m., Saturday, May 29 at the Gubelman Theatre and Steele Garden. Masks are required for indoor gatherings.

The workshop led by Llysa Holland and Andrew Litzky. As artistic instigators of internationally acclaimed, award-winning theater simple, Llysa Holland and Andrew Litzky have built a reputation for producing innovative and “impossible” theatrical experiences: original solo work, ensemble-based adaptations and out-of-the-box, site-specific community-generated performance.

In-person readings will be 2 p.m., Sunday, June 13 at the Gubelman Theatre and Steele Garden. Every author who arrives with a script will have an opportunity to have it read. One script per author.

The final submission deadline is 5 p.m., July 1. Submit plays to Courtney Kessler-Jeffrey, festival coordinator, at

Selections will be announced July 12 via email and posted on
