The playwrights came to town July 31.
Hosted in private homes throughout the Ojai Valley, 14 playwrights will spend the first week of August working together to finesse new plays, before their works are shared with the public Aug. 6 through Aug. 13 as part of the Ojai Playwrights Conference (OPC) Summer New Works Festival. 
The 2017 festival marks the conference’s 20th anniversary.
For Kim Maxwell, one of OPC’s co-founders, the anniversary represents a homecoming of sorts, she said.
Hallie Palladino, who served as Maxwell’s first festival intern in 1997, will return to OPC this year as a writer-in-residence.
