Each play must be no more than two pages in length and include no more than two characters. (Submitter’s name may not appear on this document.)

At some point in the play, the word “care” must be included–as a noun or verb and with any of its multiple meanings. “Care” has been selected to resonate with Writers & Books’ 2021 programmatic theme, “Taking Care.”

Font size must be at least 11 points. Files accepted: Word and PDF documents.

Name, address, phone number, and email address must be provided on a separate cover page.

Submitting playwrights should take into account the fact that plays will be performed over zoom, a site where actors cannot touch or interact as they would on stage. Creativity in adapting to the virtual platform is encouraged.

Submit scripts and separate cover sheets to:
