A COLLABORATIVE VIRTUAL THEATRE FESTIVAL

FEATURING COMPANIES ACROSS AUSTIN

In March 2020, live performances shut down, but theatre stayed alive. Companies pivoted, re-imagined, re-worked, collaborated, and created new ways to reach their audiences. For many that meant virtual performances: livestreams, zoom readings, and performances created whole cloth for this new medium. Austin Playfest celebrates the depth and breadth of Austin Theatre during the pandemic as we return to live performances.
