Patti B. Playwriting Award

web site

Full-length plays wanted.

In honor of a great champion of the theatre, the Patti B. Playwriting Award seeks to advance the career of an emerging playwright from the United States. This non-discriminatory award seeks writers of all walks of life to tell stories and advance theatre in unconventional, new, and surprising ways. The Patti B. Award seeks to help new art and artists thrive in our ever changing world. We seek to give voice to those with the courage to speak.

Yearly, the Patti B. Playwriting Award acknowledges two artists.
One artist will be acknowledged with a fully produced production of their play.
The second will be acknowledged with a monetary award to be paid to a college or writing program to assist with tuition, or to be paid to a theatre company to produce their work.

The Patti B. Playwriting Award will acknowledge one submission per year per artist.
