Go Try Play Write March 2024


Deadline: March 31, 2024

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 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 are always 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!

The prompt for March 2024 is:

A "shave and haircut" prompt. Write a ten (10) page maximum scene about an argument resulting from a visit to the barber/hairdresser. The conflict can be before, during, or after the cut. The conflict could be between the person getting the haircut and the person performing the cut; two people cutting their hair, or two stylists.

Best of luck!
