Registration for the event is required before submitting, and we need to receive adult (over 18) submissions by September 28. Submissions from teens 14-18 years old may be submitted through October 2. There is no additional fee.

Review: THE RAINMAKER at 1st Stage Photo
American literature has a soft spot for con artists, those ruffians who, lacking the skills or inclination to earn an honest living, prosper by using sheer charm and creativity to tell other people what they most want to hear. These rapscallions, despite living by lying, often find themselves in a position to help other characters discover certain truths about themselves. 1st Stage's production of N. Edward Nash's 1954 play The Rainmaker is an enjoyable and entertaining visit with one such miscreant.
