Young Playwright Contest

The School of the Performing Arts at theREP

Contest winners will see their short plays professionally produced on theREP’s stage in August 2018 and will receive a series of workshops led by a professional playwright. Submissions will be evaluated on creativity, dialogue, character development, plot structure, and the inclusion of the line “I would have gotten away with it too, if…” Any scripts that are longer than 10 minutes acted out will not be considered.

Congratulations to the six winning playwrights from the 2018 Young Playwright Contest!
