The Corporation for the Performing Arts (CPA) and ARTS/West are pleased to invite submissions from adventurous playwrights to participate in our 6th Annual Humble Play: New Play Festival of Appalachian Ohio.

PARTICIPATION: We are seeking plays that will highlight the work of playwrights from across the nation and will, in turn, highlight the actors and directors of Appalachia generally and Southeastern Ohio specifically through play development/production in our area, at the ARTS/West facility during the festival.

A script committee will review each play submitted. Be concise and clear in your application; the committee is interested in your evaluation of the work you are submitting, which is where you impress.
