2nd Annual Playwriting Competition
Sanguine Theatre Company announces our 2nd annual playwriting competition. Project Playwright is a result of Sanguine’s love for playwrights and new works. Once all submissions have been read a panel will select a number of scripts from which Sanguine Theatre Company will produce a staged reading in New York City of excerpts from the plays that will be determined by Sanguine Theatre Company in collaboration with the playwrights. From there, a grand prize winner will be chosen and have his or her play fully produced in a New York City theatre along with opportunities to workshop their script.

*2-10 characters *Minimal set and costume
*The title page must include the playwright’s name, address, telephone number, email address and a brief synopsis of the play
