Dennis, MA – Eventide Theatre Company is proud to announce the winner of the 2020 Jeremiah Kaplan Playwriting Competition – James Marlow, a local playwright who submitted an original full-length play, Touched by War – which was reviewed and selected by a panel of three local Eventide judges.
James Marlow is no stranger to the theater world, having written several short plays that have been produced around the country, as well as having another full-length play read at the Provincetown Theatre Company. He has also won several playwriting competitions and has self-published four novels.
As this year’s Kaplan winner, Marlow will receive a staged reading of his play and a $1000 cash prize. The staged reading will be produced by Eventide Theatre Company and directed by Kay DeFord, a well-known and longtime Eventide director. Details regarding this public reading, to be held over the summer, will be announced as soon as they are finalized.
The Jeremiah Kaplan Playwriting Competition was established in 2006 with its first winner being selected in 2007. For over a decade, the competition has showcased local playwriting talent, encouraging fresh creative voices and original new works.
