GO TRY PLAYWRITE (Kuma Kahua monthly prompt)


Deadline: October 31, 2022


The prompt for the month of October 2022 is: A Thanksgiving situation. A fight over food that masks strongly held political differences. For example, here in Hawai‘i, one person brings Zippy’s Chili with meat and another brings Zippy’s Chili without meat, and the ensuing argument masks a fight over whether or not the Honolulu Rail is a good thing.

We’re proud to announce a new monthly playwriting contest in collaboration with Bamboo Ridge Press!

Every month, Kumu Kahua’s artistic director Harry Wong III will select a writing prompt on or by the first day of that month. 

We’re looking for 5-page monologues or 10-page scenes based on that prompt; the due date for submissions will always be the last day of the month. 

All entries must be written in traditional play format; instructions on this format can be found here (https://www.dramatistsguild.com/script-formats), courtesy of the Dramatists Guild.

There will be one winner each month. Scripts will be submitted to the judges anonymously. Winners will receive $100 and a subscription to Bamboo Ridge Press. Woo!

Best of luck!
