We enable our young future leaders to turn theatre spaces into civic spaces, uniting communities despite their distances and differences with one voice saying it’s time to put an end to gun violence. It’s time we say ENOUGH.
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
We call on middle and high school students from across the country to write and submit 10-minute plays that confront the issue of gun violence. Winning playwrights receive payment for their work, free memberships to The Dramatists Guild, and feedback from professional playwrights. Their plays will also be published by Playscripts in a collected anthology that can be licensed for future productions.
NEXT ROUND: September 1 - November 1, 2021
A committee composed of award-winning playwrights selects the 6-8 winning plays. 21/22 Selection Committee TBA. Learn more about the 2020 2020 Selection Committee and explore the winning plays of the 2020 competition.
We invite middle and high schools, colleges, theatres, and other organizations to produce staged readings of the winning #ENOUGH plays in their community for FREE. The reading is an opportunity to create space for dialogue on the issue through a post-show discussion and commit to an action item specific to their community.
