The Emerging Playwright Competition, now in its fifth year, attracts talented playwrights from a 100-mile radius of the Phillips’ Mill Community Association. The goal of the competition is to encourage new work and bring it to the stage. The first 50 submissions received during the acceptance period (July 1 – August 31, 2022 midnight) will be considered. Our distinguished panel of judges will evaluate all scripts and select as many as six winners, who will be notified during the week of October 12, 2022. The judges’ decisions are final. No written or verbal critique will be required of the judges. Each winning entry will receive a cash prize of $100.00 and a public reading before a live audience at Phillips’ Mill on Saturday, November 19, 2022.
