Showoff Playwriting FestivalLiterary

Every year, the Showoff Playwriting Festival in San Juan Capistrano presents some of the brightest and most promising writing talent on stage. The Festival draws entries from all across the U.S. and several foreign countries. Each play must be 10 minutes long and this challenge is met by the writers with innovation and excellent story telling technique. Each year for two weekends, the festival presents the top seven plays plus a Reader's Theater presentation of a different runner-up each night.

It's audience participation: at the end of each performance the audience gets to vote on their favorites!
