Celebrating 20 Years: A Look Back At The 2008 Festival

Continuing our look back at the past 19 years of Essential Theatre festivals, today we take a look back at the tenth Essential Theatre Festival, in 2008.


2008 was the last of the four Festivals we presented in the back space at 7 Stages. Along with Letitia Sweitzer’s WEST OF EDEN, our Essential Theatre Playwriting Award winner, we produced Paul Rudnick’s beautiful epic comedy VALHALLA and Gina Gionfriddo’s searing drama AFTER ASHLEY.

(VALHALLA remains one of Artistic Director Peter Hardy’s favorite shows he has ever directed.)
