The Write-In by Nick McCord (Festival Reading #5)
Directed by Shelby Taylor Love
When voters choose Jesus Christ as the write-in candidate for a city council seat, murder, mayhem and an unruly flock of celestial icons descend on Davy County, North Carolina, spurring one woman to downright transcend her role as ballot-counting election official.

About the Festival:
Each summer at the end of July, we present a three-day event showcasing readings of student work from the Playwrights Lab. These readings are minimally staged for the general public and close to a dozen theatre professionals as respondents from as far away as Los Angeles and from as close as right here in Roanoke.
These readings are presented free to the public, but there is limited seating. Many of our festival readings have gone on to be published, produced and won major awards. Come see tomorrow's stars today!
Our festival is presented in collaboration with Mill Mountain Theatre on their Waldron Stage.
