The Flora and Fauna
by Alyson Mead
Developmental Reading

The Flora and Fauna was inspired by a single line from the famous letter read in court during the Stanford rape case. What comes after a sexual assault - how might one's daily, mundane life be affected; who might one choose to hang out with; and how may intimacy play a part in that, or not? How would a friendship between two women change over time?

PCSF hits 1500 plays

PCSF has hit a milestone! As of May 22, 2016, PCSF has brought 1500 plays to the stage in the form of public readings and productions. Some of these plays have gone on to readings and productions elsewhere.

We are proud of our record supporting Bay Area playwrights in honing their work, and we are proud of and grateful to the playwrights, directors, actors, volunteers, donors, and others who have brought us this far and are bringing us into the future of theatre.
