Terry Lamb (1943-2017)

We regret to announce the recent passing of PCSF member Terry Lamb. We had the pleasure of presenting a reading of his play The Space Between in fall 2016.

Terry was also an actor, appearing in Deep Cut, Night Over Erzinga, Urge for Going, Language Rooms, and The Most Dangerous Highway in the World, all at Golden Thread, where he was also a board member.

PCSF Board Changes and Opportunities

I would like to update you on some changes, as well as offer you some opportunities, regarding the PCSF Board.

After serving as part of PCSF leadership for a number of years, Elizabeth Flanagan and Jim Norrena are leaving the board. During their tenure, they helped our organization more clearly define our core mission and achieve the financial stability that makes our future growth possible. While we will miss their contributions as Board members, both Jim and Elizabeth will continue active involvement in PCSF. (Jim will be helping with updates to our online presence, and Elizabeth is co-producing the upcoming PlayOffs production in November.)

Patricia L. Morin (previously Board Member-at-Large) will assume the responsibilities of Communications Director going forward.

These departures open up two positions on the Board. These positions are:

Secretary – responsible for record keeping and archiving, new member orientation, and membership outreach. Voting and signatory board member Board.

Member-at-Large -- this is a voting position, and also a training position for movement into one of the other board positions.

The time commitment for Board participation fluctuates, but typically involves a few hours each week, and attendance of the monthly board meeting. We ask those joining the board to commit to 2 years of service, in order to preserve necessary continuity.

PCSF membership is not required for Board service – opportunities are open to all interested PCSF members, as well as any other theatre professionals interested in helping create the future of PCSF.

Anyone interested in joining the PCSF board is encouraged to contact Bridgette Dutta Portman


Publicity Guide updated

The PCSF Publicity Guide (PDF), a basic guide for getting audiences for your readings and performances, has been updated to 2016. Thank you to Laylah Muran de Assereto for her work on this helpful work.


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.
