Calling all Playwrights!

The Lab, with support from BLT, is sponsoring a playwriting contest for their May Reader’s Theatre production. Previously unproduced plays are eligible, and there are no restrictions as to style or subject matter.

Plays must be submitted electronically no later than March 15th. There is a $20.00 submission fee. The contest is open to all playwrights; however, preference will be given to playwrights residing in Butler, Allegheny, Venango, Armstong, Beaver, and Lawrence Counties in Pennsylvania. The winner will be announced on April 15 and the Reader’s Theatre production of the play is planned for May 19.  For more information including rules and terms, visit
