Are you ready for a magical journey? The talented, wonderfully thoughtful and supportive artists of Panndora Productions will take you on such a journey as your play comes to life before an audience in love with the new and unknown. From the first read-through via FaceTime to the discussions with the director and actors after the performance, I experienced JUPITER MOON in a way I never had before-as living theater, as a mysterious creative process, as something more than I could have ever imagined when I wrote the play. That was the great gift for me--the wonderful process where the words I've written, the actors, and the audience create together something new, fragile, precious--the performance of a play. After that, I saw playwriting as something totally different, and even more challenging and exciting-as a magical journey into a new experience, a new world, together.
Bob Valine, author of this year's show JUPITER MOON

Working with Panndora was one of the best experiences of my professional career.  They provide dramaturgical support, a skilled director, and talented actors for a rehearsed reading where they really focus on the story the playwright's trying to tell. They commit themselves to getting the writers everything they need to truly develop their play.  The best part: the Panndorians are committed to producing at least one of the plays from the festival-- it's truly a special opportunityKevin Daly, author of IN KINGS & FOOLS, 2017

As a playwright, it is extremely rare to be able to watch one's work with a blank slate and objective eye. It is almost impossible to be able to simply sit and enjoy the work on the stage without judgment, conscious or otherwise. However, when I attended Panndora's Box production of my play Sweet Texas Reckoning last weekend that is exactly what I was able to do. I could not be more proud of this production and am forever indebted to the amazing team at Panndora's Box for giving me this extraordinary gift. Tracey Godfrey, author of SWEET TEXAS RECKONING, 2016

I would give my eye teeth to spend the rest of my career working with people as thoughtful and lovingly creative as you all—and I hope someday we get to work together again, because what a joy that would be. But more than that, I want you to keep creating the work of writers whose plays you flat out love, because writers deserve that. So keep making the choices you make based on your love for those scripts and do not settle for less than love, because the work is so beautiful when it comes out of that and it really is such a gift. Ben Jolivet, author of FRAGILE THING CRACKS, 2014
