About the New Play Festival

The Icicle Creek New Play Festival is a unique Northwest institution which for eleven years has offered American playwrights the space, time, and support they need to develop their new plays. Playwrights come to Icicle Creek Center to collaborate with a skilled team of professional actors, directors and dramaturgs in a week of intensive workshopping which permits the authors to make major improvements to their plays. At week’s end, the Leavenworth community and theater industry professionals are invited to Snowy Owl Theater to see presentations of the plays and give feedback to the playwrights, thus becoming a significant part of the birth of new American plays. The Festival then brings those new plays to ACT as part of ACTLab, where they receive feedback from Seattle audiences. Four Festival plays have gone on to win the Steinberg Award — the top award for plays produced outside of New York City.
