The STAGE International Script Competition
University of California announces the 5th cycle of Stage International Script Competiton. A $10,000 prize will be given for the best new play about science and technology.
Submitted plays must explore scientific and/or technological stories, themes, issues and/or events. Science and/or technology must figure prominently in the script, whether in form or content or both. Biographical dramas, history plays, and medical dramas are discouraged unless they significantly employ science and/or technology. Authors are strongly urged to avoid the stereotypes often assigned to science, technology, and those who engage in these disciplines. This competition is not open to plays written in the genre of science fiction.
New guidelines and our next deadline have been posted so that writers may know the requirements and begin to prepare entries in advance, but please note that the Competition will not accept scripts until September 15, 2011.
