This June will mark the first of what organizers hope will be a new annual festival in Beaufort: the International New Plays Festival of the Lowcountry
It's stated to be "a celebration of innovative and original works -- and the performances and audiences that bring them to life. The Festival is a Lowcountry event with global scope. We invite writers the world over to submit new dramatic works in English."
Tickets to each night are $10, or $25 for all three nights. Buy tickets in advance by calling (843) 521-4145, or buy them at the door.
We'll keep you posted with more info as we hear it; until then, learn more on their website.
Update June 12: The Island Packet has followed up with some background about what will be performed and who's putting on the plays; take a read here.
