New Works Playwright Competition (OCTA Special Event)
March 2 and 3, 2018 | 8 pm
Which of the five finalists of OCTA’s New Works Playwright Competition will get a full length workshop for their script? You’ll see short teasers of each script, then vote for the winner. Make your voice count and support the local playwriting community at the same time! Audiences will vote both nights - the winning script will be announced Saturday night after a talkback with the playwrights hosted by last year's winner Michelle Tyrene Johnson (THE GREEN BOOK WINE CLUB TRAIN TRIP).
This year’s five finalists are:
SPELLBOUND by Emma Carter
GOSPEL HOUR by Bill Cummings
THE SUMMER HOUSE by Christie Kennard
ADOPTION OF GRIEF by Jessie Salsbury
PROMISES TO KEEP by Judith Zivanovic
Full cast lists and directors are in the event on our Facebook page!
