Gloria Ann Barnell Peter Playwright Competition

web site

Playwrights are invited to submit original scripts to the sixth Gloria Ann Barnell Peter Playwright Competition.  The friends and family of Ms Peter -a playwright, actress, and lover of history- established a fund at the Morgan Opera House in Aurora, NY, to honor her memory and to encourage the writing and production of theatre art.  

Criteria include: the play must be an original work, previously unpublished.  It must dramatize an historical event or an historical fiction.  It may include one or two acts and be no less than 45-60 minutes in total length, with no limit of form.  All scripts must be typed and will become property of the Morgan Opera House.

Submissions must be postmarked by Monday, March 2, 2015.  The winner of the $500 prize will be announced in April and the play will be presented at the Morgan Opera House, a small historic raked-stage theatre, in late 2015.  Submit one copy of work to Gloria Peter Playwright Competition, PO Box 327, Aurora, NY, 13026.

Refer to www.morganoperahouse.org for clarifications.  Direct inquiries to Ann Mathieson (annscott2268@gmail.com) or 315-364-7325.
