30 Pages in 30 Days

A Playwriting Competition

  

February 24, 2017 - 7:00PM

Join us on February 24th at Seacoast Repertory Theatre to celebrate the 3 Finalists in our inaugural 30 Pages in 30 Days playwright competition!

Playwrights were given the month of November to write an original one act play focusing on the complex social issues that are facing our communities today. We received nearly 20 submissions from playwrights across the state and the top 3 were chosen. The finalists are: 

Over the Fence  by Catherine Stewart 

When The Tides Comes In  by Sharleigh Thomson

Uprising  by Susan Sinnott

Each of these one acts will be presented as a staged reading beginning at 7pm on Friday, February 24 at the Seacoast Repertory Theatre. Because these one acts are based on complex social issues facing our communities today, they may not be appropriate for younger audiences. Following the readings, the audience will be able to participate in a talk back session with each playwright. At the end of the evening, a panel of judges will award the winner of 30 Pages in 30 Days a prize of $500 and the opportunity to produce their one act on the Wilcox Industries Main Stage as part of Prescott Park Arts Festival's 43rd summer season.

This event is free and open to the public, with a suggested donation of $5/person. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP here.

 

*In order for the winning submission to be performed on the Festival stage, it should be written, or adapted, to fit into the mission of Prescott Park Arts Festival
