Next Generation Playwriting Contest

Filed under: Listings,Press Releases — offoffbway @ 9:47 pm

Some readings from the good folks at Reverie Productions. The last two plays to come out of their contest were good: HAVANA BOURGEOIS and PING PONG DIPLOMACY.

Here’s the latest batch (text from their email newsletter):
We’ve got a guy who tatoos advertising on his forehead (Billboard), a funny twist on war profiteering (Your Army), A tour guide imprisoned for burning down his place of employment (Guided Tour), an unwitting moment of racial violence (Luck), and an isolated matriarcal society in the hills of New Jersey (Humans Remain). In other words – fun for the whole family.

All Readings will take place in the Bruce Mitchell Room

at the ART/New York Spaces at 520 8th Avenue (at 36th St) on the 3rd floor.

Admission: Pay What You Can
