ON THE STAGE series: September 26 - October 5
In our ON THE STAGE series, we present two full length musicals, one full length play and a short one-act play at the end of their development journey. These productions are ready for the stage, and we hope that GFTF2019 will be one of their last stops before a world premiere.
For our playwrights, ON THE STAGE offers a chance to see how all of the production and design elements come together before an audience, and after the show to interact directly with members of the audience.

High school has always been tough. But in the dystopian world of RANKED, brutal competition reaches new heights as publicized academic excellence comes to define each student's worth. In the face of an intense and perverse culture of performance, Lily must come to grips with her place in the status quo as she watches friends and enemies alike destroy themselves and each other to score their way to the top of academic leaderboards. When an impossible lie is discovered, the fate of these students' futures hangs in the balance.

Sarah Boyd is an extraordinary human being. Not only did she build her company from scratch using nothing but willpower and fortitude, she also sits on the precipice of truly saving this planet. Because on top of being one of the fastest growing tech companies in history, Tactix - with Sarah at its helm - will usher this planet into the post-plastic era.
A time where we need not worry or fret over the great destruction being done to our world from this non-biodegradable foe. With her eyes steady on her next round of funding, Sarah must persevere through a late night interview with a particularly tough reporter, a lawsuit aimed at a person from her past, and the waffling of her CTO. It's a heavy load, and Sarah knows that she is the only one great enough to bear it.
