The Baltimore Playwrights Festival congratulates this year’s winners, and would like to thank all the playwrights, theaters, directors, actors, technical support and judges whose participation in this year’s Festival made the BPF’s Thirtieth Season a roaring success. Most of all, the BPF would like to thank the Baltimore theater-going audience, without whose support we would not be able to fulfill our mission of nurturing playwrights in the Maryland and District of Columbia area.
