We are SO excited to share with you that the Idaho Women’s Charitable Foundation (IWCF) has awarded BCT $30,000, establishing IWCF as founding sponsor of the annual BCT BIPOC Playwrights Festival.

The Festival will take place over two weeks in August 2021. The playwrights, directors, and actors will use the first week to workshop these brand new plays. The workshops will then culminate in staged readings at The Morrison Center during the second week of the festival.

Festival Director Lily Yasuda collaborated with a play selection committee of play playwrights, directors and artistic directors from across the country to bring these exciting new voices to Boise. Read more about the plays, the playwrights and production team.

Festival Dates: August 2–14
