Who are we? 

Broke People Play Festival

Broke People was founded with one purpose: to help playwrights see their work lift off the page. Since then, we've grown into a space for all theatre artists: playwrights, directors, actors, techs. We focus on creating a safe environment for student artists to experiment and try new things, to learn the beauty of collaboration and the art of making a play.

Shadow Show


The Broke People Play Festival is a group of undergraduate and graduate student artists whose goal is to produce, write, direct, and perform original work in the form of staged readings and workshops. Through our development process, we bring together writers, actors, and directors to create new and exciting works.
