Chicago, June 14 — The American Theatre Critics Association voted today to hold its 2013 conference at the Contemporary American Theatre Festival in Shepherdstown, West Virginia.
The festival will be offering two commissioned productions and several other new works and staged readings, to be announced later in the year. Festival leaders are working with ATCA to secure discounted hotel rooms and transportation from Washington Dulles International Airport, the closest, to help attending members.
The festival, which will stage its 100th production next season, operates for a month in July in theater spaces at Shepherd University. It is an area filled with natural beauty near many historic sites, including Harper’s Ferry and Antietnam Battlefield. Details will follow in the months ahead.
