Gloria Ann Barnell Peter Playwright Competition

web site

Playwrights are invited to submit original script to the 7th 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 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Criteria include: the play must be an original work, previously unpublished.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 be no less than 45 minutes in total length, with no limit of form (musical, once actor, etc.). Please see the web site for additional clarification. Please submit both a digital and a hard copy of each script with a cover letter (see web site). The author’s name should appear on the title page only as anonymity eliminates the potential for bias among the judges.

Submissions must be postmarked by Monday, March 31, 2018. 

The winner of the $500 prize will be announced in late May and the play will be presented at the Morgan Opera House later in the year.

Mail one copy of the work to GABP Playwright Competition, P.O. Box 327, Aurora, NY 13026. Digital copies may be submitted to baumish@gmail.com.

All scripts become the physical property of the Morgan Opera House. However, in accordance with copyright law, the content of the script remains the intellectual property of the author. Both forms of non-winning scripts will be destroyed unless the hard copy includes a SASE for its return.
The MOH prefers to work directly with the author regarding production details, agents notwithstanding.
