Saint James Place at 352 Main Street (Rts. 7 & 41) in Great Barrington is the new home of the Berkshire Playwrights Lab.

Berkshire Playwrights Lab is celebrating its tenth anniversary and its new home at Saint James Place in Great Barrington with a celebration today (Friday, June 9). BPL kicked off the year with the Radius Playwrights Festival, which featured new short plays created by six local writers within a 50-mile radius of Great Barrington and filled the new performance space to capacity. BPL will continue its Staged Reading Series on Wednesdays June 28, July 12 & July 26, and will cap off the summer with a full three-week production of Some Old Black Man, a play that began its history with BPL as a Staged Reading in 2015.

Today’s anniversary celebration begins with a 7pm party for Underwriter and Patron ticket holders that includes a silent auction, followed by a performance at 8:30pm (house opens for show-only ticket holders at 8pm), and a reconvening of the gathering for Underwriters and Patron ticket holders post-show. The performance will be a revue of some of the best short plays performed at BPL galas through the years, which have always featured professional stage and screen actors, many very well-known. The cost for the party and performance is $250 per Underwriter ticket; $150 per Patron ticket; and show-only tickets for $50 per person.
