The PlayGround PlayGroup is a year-long collaborative workshop where writers and creators of varying mediums convene to convert their pages, projects, and ideas into fresh new works. Ranging from new plays, to new music, to communal board games, and parades, each artist will get a chance to celebrate their creation in front of an audience at the FGP Festival.
