Description:

Playwrights First is an organization which recognizes, rewards and advances playwrights of unusual promise.

Our group is made up of actors, directors, producers, a new playwright, teachers, authors, a theater owner, journalists, lawyers and business men and women. We are the judges in a playwriting contest we have held since 1993. We believe that drama is essentially a literary form that is fully realized in performance.

We offer a $1,000 grant for the winning play, and when feasible, a professional reading before a New York audience.
