After stops in New York, Chicago, and San Francisco, the 4th annual Jewish Playwriting Contest is coming to Boston for the first time! An international search for the best unpublished Jewish plays, the Contest has vetted 712 plays from 610 writers in 28 states and 9 countries since 2012, and is proud to present this year’s Top 3 for the audience’s enjoyment – and judgment!
Patrons are invited to join Jewish Plays Project Founder David Winitsky to watch a cast of stellar actors read 20-minute sections from three plays, and then vote for which play should continue on in the contest. The three plays are Love Me Tender by Atar Hadari,#julys by Same Lahne and The Owl Girl by Monica Raymond (Raymond is a local playwright based in Cambridge).
The winner of the Jewish Playwriting Project gets a workshop production for industry leaders in New York as part of JPP’s OPEN: Festival of New Jewish Theater at the 14th Street Y this June.
