Playwrights – Writers
Do you have a play you’re writing?
Have you completed a full length play?
Are you working on one, and would appreciate a critical review?
Eventide Theatre Company showcases an array of Cape Cod creative voices, including our annual New Playwrights, New Plays: the Jeremiah Kaplan Playwriting Competition and Performance. Now in our 10th year, we accept full length plays-no incomplete or one-act play manuscripts (deadline for the 2017 competition is September 1, 2016), which includes the following:
Your submission is read by an established playwright/director/designer who provides an in-depth written critique, beginning a process which includes the following:
• he is available for some post critique discussion via e-mail
• we hold a public reading of your play (should you wish), inviting interested individuals to attend, with questions and reactions to follow
• you have an opportunity to pursue workshops and consultations
• you are provided with time after the critique to work on your play, then
• we employ three individuals to read all submitted plays and reach a decision on the winning play
• we select a director and actors, conduct rehearsals working with the playwright, and stage 2 readings of the play on our stage before paying audiences. This year’s performances dates will be in the Spring of 2017.
• Present a check for $1000 to the winning playwright.
We are looking at a June 1, 2016 commitment date, completed manuscript by September 1, 2016, and final submission date of January 2017. The Spring 2017 performance dates are to be determined. Entry fee is $50.
