GC Players present ‘Still Life of Iris’

Still Life with Iris follows a young girl’s quest to recover her memory and with it, her home. When a mysterious man arrives in Nocturno — the land where all things are made — Iris’ life takes a tragic turn, and she soon finds herself on the Island of the Great Goods where the pursuit of perfection reigns. With the help of the pirate Annabel Lee and a young Mozart, Iris breaks free from her captors and sets out on a journey to discover who she is and why remembering her past is so important.

Thank you for another amazing year of NCYPF play submissions! We had some fantastic Elementary, Middle, and High School plays submitted! Below are listed the winning plays and Honorable Mention plays.  

All winning plays will be given a staged reading at Center Stage at UNCG on March 16.  It is requested that each winning playwright be present at the final rehearsal that morning and during the showcase so that the playwright can participate in a talk-back session with the audience following their play’s reading. 

We encourage and invite all submitting playwrights to attend CenterStage.  Honorable Mentions will be recognized at the festival and will receive a certificate. Please be looking for more information soon regarding logistics for March 16.
