A lecherous goat, Pentecostals on the radio, a clutter of in-bred cats, phone calls from death row, and Daddy’s burnpile.

This December's presentation is the THIRD installment in what we hope to grow into a Southeast, play writing competition. Every year TNT's “WRITTEN IN THE SOUTH” Series plans to feature the works of new Southern playwrights, both published and unpublished. Our goal is to provide a venue for developing playwrights to showcase their work and an opportunity for area actors, directors, and students to collaborate and interact directly with the authors during the production period. “WRITTEN IN THE SOUTH” also promises to give Birmingham audiences the first look at what is being created by the talented artists in this part of the country.


WITS #1: December 2016

World Premiere of Audrey Cefaly’s “Love Is A Blue Tick Hound”...a perfect way to kickoff this exciting annual event.


WITS #2: December 2017

Alabama premiere of Daryl Lisa Fazio's "Split In Three", a thrilling trip back into 1969 Mississippi.
