Are you an Atlanta playwright?
Atlanta is a great incubator of new plays, and we have the largest organization in the Southeast exclusively devoted to the development of new plays. Check them out at WORKING TITLE PLAYWRIGHTS.
Named in honor of the founder of The Suzi Bass Awards, and continuing in memory of his enthusiastic support of local playwrights, this award is currently an inscribed plaque. Future plans include a monetary prize each season, once the award is fully endowed. A committee of local theatre scholars and practitioners will read plays by local playwrights which have been produced in the current season.
In order to qualify for the Playwriting Award, the play must be:
Written or co-written by a playwright/composer whose professional residence is the Atlanta Metro Area;
Given a full production by a local theatre (no readings, staged readings or concert versions);
Production script submitted by August 1 in the year following the production.
Released by the playwright for dissemination to the Playwriting Award Panel for the sole purpose of judging for the award.
