Araca Group seeks The Best Play

web site

The Araca Group, a Broadway theatrical producing company, is once again seeking “The Best Play” from playwrights in post-collegiate universities and professional study programs. The style, subject and length of the submissions are entirely up to you. However, this year, we are opening the contest up to emerging writers nationwide.

The selected playwright will have the opportunity for his/her play to be performed in a free and public reading to be held in May in New York City, directed by and acted in by a New York City creative team. The Araca Group will assume all travel expenses to and from your university.

The deadline for submissions is October 21, 2011. The winning play will be read in December 2011. A release needed to accompany the submission materials will be available on araca.com next week.

Founded in 1997 by partners Matthew Rego, Michael Rego, and Hank Unger, The Araca Group has grown from a start-up working out of a one-room office into an internationally renowned merchandise and Tony Award winning production company. Most notably, Araca has produced Wicked, Urinetown, The Wedding Singer, Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune, The Laramie Project, The Vagina Monologues, Rock of Ages, A View From the Bridge, Lend Me a Tenor, Merchant of Venice, and House of Blue Leaves.
