For over 10 years, 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. We accept full-length play manuscripts (please no musicals or previously produced work) from Cape Cod playwrights only.
+ The playwright chosen as having submitted the best script will receive a $1,000.00 prize and a public reading on the Gertrude Lawrence Stage in Dennis.
+ After the submission, each play is given a written critique by a theatre professional .
+ With the initial submission, an entry fee of $25 is required to defray the cost of the written critique.
+ Further post critique discussion via email can occur before the final draft is due.
+ We employ three individuals to read the final submissions.
+ With the collaboration of the winning playwright, a director and actors will be chosen to prepare the public reading which will be held on our stage before a paying audience in the spring of 2020.
+ The $1,000.00 check will be presented to the winning playwright at that reading.
+Any questions about the Kaplan Playwriting Competition should be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
