2014 Women Playwrights Series (WPS) and Susan Glaspell Contest

web site

Deadline for Dramatists Guild  Members – Jan 10, 2014

The Centenary Stage Company, an Equity theatre in residence on the campus of Centenary College in  Hackettstown, NJ is accepting submissions for the 2014 Women Playwrights Series (WPS)  and Susan Glaspell Contest.

Now in its 22th year, the WPS is a developmental program dedicated to providing a working forum for the unique and underserved voice of women writing for the theatre today.  Each season 3 new plays are selected for a collaborative workshop process, with a professional director and actors, which takes place in a brief rehearsal period, over a period of a approximately 1 week, allowing time for the playwright to hear and adapt their work with other professionals. The process culminates in a presentation of the work for the public as part of the Series giving CSC audiences larger exposure to new work, as well as offering the playwright an opportunity to get feedback from the audience during the development process.

Playwrights selected for the workshop process will receive a $200 honorarium. Additional funds for travel and housing are available for one playwright each season.

THE  2014 SUSAN GLASPELL CONTEST:  One play from the WPS Festival will be selected by a panel of judges as the winner, to be featured in a subsequent CSC main-stage season as a full production, with an additional award of $1500 to the playwright.

Guidelines for WPS Susan Glaspell Contest:
Submit Full-length play, with no prior AEA production. 

(If play has had one production, please include information in  your cover letter about the company, # of performances, and contract, if applicable)
