As previously reported, Virgin Labfest is returning to the stage after two consecutive virtual runs.

The Virgin Labfest is an annual festival of untried, untested, and unstaged works. Since it was established in 2005, it has been known for supporting the development of plays and educating and mentoring young artists/playwrights.
