productions are professionally directed with some professional actors
and many student actors.

every page.
* Include on the cover a phone number and email address where we
can reach you over the winter break. We will notify you on whether or
not your play was accepted at this time. Please check your email since
there is important information for those chosen.)

Please be advised that if your play is selected you will have certain
responsibilities as a New Play Festival writer including:
* attending at least 50% of rehearsals
* being open to input from your collaborators with a mind to
re-writing and developing our play

* working with your director and the festival producers to mount
the piece (casting, fundraising, marketing, assembling a design team,
production assistance, etc.)
