 The City Theatre National Award for Short Playwriting:

The City Theatre National Award for Short Playwriting furthers the Company’s mission to identify, acknowledge and award excellence in dramatic writing. Up to twenty playwrights will be selected from among the hundreds who annually submit their ten-minute plays to the company for special recognition.  The winning play will be produced in the 18th Annual Summer Shorts Festival, for which the playwright will earn royalties, be invited to Miami for the festival and to take part in the CityWrights Professional Weekend for Playwrights.

Congratulations!
