Playwrights for Change

Enter the Playwrights for Change Competition

Check out this year's theme:

What No One Talks About

It can take courage to speak about a difficult topic. Sometimes we avoid talking about something really important among family and friends. What if we actually talked about what this is really all about? Instead of squabbling about the small stuff.  What’s at the heart of it that no seems to want to bring to the light. What should be trending? What should everyone be talking about?
