2023 Contest Winners!

We had a fabulous 10-Minute Play competition this year, with dramas, historical fiction, comedies, and avant-garde genres represented. The readers had a delightful time absorbing each play. With over 200 entries from across the US and eight other countries, our adjudicators had a challenge selecting the finalists, but the results are now in.

Thank You to all who participated!
