"How blessed I am to have a festival of my plays, it is simply extraordinary. But to have Pittsburgh Playwrights bringing them to life is over the top, The work ethic, the amazing talent and the vision of Monteze Freeland and Mark Southers, their confidence in my work, is indeed humbling. And all this, of course, for the audience to go home smiling. Or thinking. Or feeling a little better about life. And the people around them."
- Ray Werner, Playwright
