The Kaplan Playwriting Competition was created to nurture local playwrights and recognize their outstanding work and advance Eventide’s commitment to strengthening the full spectrum of theater arts on the Cape.  Playwrights must have a Cape connection or their play must have a Cape Cod & Islands setting.  Thirty-six plays were entered in this year’s competition, which was directed by Candace Perry, a former winner of the Kaplan.
