An Invitation to Playwrights: A Single-Act Play Competition
University House (UH) is a senior residence in the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle.  For many years residents have performed one-act plays adapted for a “reader’s theater.”  To extend its involvement in theater, UH residents are sponsoring a contest in which talented and creative playwrights of the Puget Sound region are being encouraged to submit one-act unpublished and unperformed plays for UH performance.  Awards are: 1st $1000. 2nd  $750. 3rd $500. and any other plays selected $200.   Admission is not charged for performances.     

The following conditions apply:
·        Submitted plays, evaluated anonymously by a UH panel, will be selected      on the criteria of acceptability, quality, and appropriateness.

·        Authors are to submit one signed and three unsigned hard copies of the play.

·        Plays will be produced, directed, and performed by UH residents in a

      “reading theater”  format.
·        Scene descriptions and background notes may be read by a narrator.

·        The number of characters is limited to 5.

·        The play is to have a 40-60 minute duration.

·        There is no suggested theme.

·        Authors are allowed to submit only one (single-act ) play.

Playwrights submitting a play will receive a performance schedule and are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Deadline for submissions:  January 1, 2016.   Awards will be announced approximately a month  later.

Please include author contact information and self-addressed stamped envelope for notification of UH receipt of play.
