MARIO FRATTI-FRED NEWMAN POLITICAL PLAY CONTEST
INFO: The Mario Fratti-Fred Newman Political Play Contest is intended to encourage the writing of progressive plays that engage the political/social/cultural questions affecting the world today and/or historical events and issues that impact on our communities.
The contest encourages scripts that experiment with form and seek new ways of seeing and new ways of experiencing theatrical performance. Castillo welcomes scripts from all countries and cultures.
The plays submitted to the Fratti-Newman Political Play Contest may be written in any style, set in any historical time, geographic or imaginary location, contain any number of characters and be of any length. The plays must be in English and cannot be musicals or adaptations. No scripts will be considered that have previously been submitted to this contest, have received a production or won other contests. Only one script per playwright per year will be accepted.
The contest is judged by a team of distinguished theatre artists.
PRIZE: The winning script(s) will receive a reading at the Castillo Theatre in New York City during the theatre’s 2019 summer season.
DEADLINE: July 1, 2018
