Huff, Reddin, Hudes tapped for O’Neill

Conference announces eight-play slate

Eight new plays — including scripts by Quiara Alegria Hudes, Keith Reddin and Keith Huff — will make up the 47th annual National Playwrights Conference at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center in Waterford, Conn.

“The Happiest Song Plays Last,” by Hudes (“In the Heights”); “Acquainted With the Night,” by Reddin (“Life and Limb”); and “Tell Us of the Night,” by Huff (“A Steady Rain”) are joined by Jennifer Haley’s “The Nether,” Christina Anderson’s “Good Goods,” Anna Ziegler’s “An Incident,” Dan LeFranc’s “The Troublemaker Project” and Iris Goodwin’s “How We Got On.”

The eight works, selected from nearly 1,000 submitted, will receive readings at the center’s campus in July. Conference led by a.d. Wendy C. Goldberg has added one more work from last year’s seven. Hudes’ play is being developed in collaboration with the Goodman Theater.

Annual legit development program helped launch the career of scribes such as August Wilson. More recent plays to go on to multiple productions have included Julia Cho’s “The Language Archive” and Jason Grote’s “1001.”

The 2011 round of staged readings, which are open to the public, runs July 6-30.
