Douglas Morrisson Theatre to Host 3rd Annual Playwrights CageMatch!, 7/13

The Douglas Morrisson Theatre in Hayward announces its Third Annual Playwrights CageMatch on Sunday, July 13, 2014: CAFETORIUM CHRONICLES: LOST & FOUND. Five playwrights will enter but only one will emerge victorious! Join us as playwrights far and wide square off.

The only requirements for aspiring contributors were that the scenes had to be 20 minutes or less, have no more than four characters, and be set in a high school cafetorium in Anywhere, USA. We particularly looked for creative and elegant back-stories that incorporated a cafetorium setting into the scene. The tone, theme or genre was up to the playwrights --- Class reunion? Bingo game? Polling place? PTA meeting? Bomb shelter? Inside the cafetorium anything can happen.

This year we've had entries from all over the U.S., and even one from abroad, and they are still coming in. Artistic Director Susan E. Evans, with some help from her team, will select the top five submissions, and each one will be allowed one rehearsal. The five scenes will be presented on July 13th at a live staged reading at the Hayward Area Senior Center right next door to the Douglas Morrisson Theatre, and the audience will decide the winner.

The deadline for CageMatch submissions sent via e-mail is June 1, 2014; post-mark deadline, if mailed, is May 30, 2014

Admission for the CageMatch is free, and tokens to vote will be sold for $5.
