Pride Films and Plays presents:

The Great Trans* Play Contest, directed by trans* artist Delia Kropp, this international competition is open exclusively to playwrights who are transgender, gender queer, gender fluid, non-binary, or of other gender nonconforming identities, all referred to here as "trans*. The mission of this new competition is to specifically encourage new stories touching the trans* community and its members which are told with authentic trans* voices and thereby provide valuable opportunities for trans theatre artists in the disciplines of performance, direction, and management. In the process, Pride Films and Plays will foster trans* identified authors and help amplify their work within the queer and general theatre communities.

Specific benefits to the winning submission will include a cash award, and further development in a week-long rehearsal workshop under the direction of Pride Films and Plays company member and trans* artist Delia Kropp, culminating in two publicly performed staged readings at Pride Films and Plays' home, the Pride Arts Center. 

This event is part of the films and plays of Pride Month. Click here for the main story.
