We will choose 9 new plays to present as a fundraiser for our company. Please see the guidelines below for submission information.

This year's prompt is: Tolerance/Intolerance

“In the practice of tolerance, one's enemy is the best teacher." - Dalai Lama 

“I have seen great intolerance shown in support of tolerance.” -Samuel Taylor Coleridge

“It's not about whether or not someone is a bigot, but whether or not the argument which that someone is arguing is worth being a bigot about.” - Criss Jami

“No man can truly embrace the practice of tolerance until you have lived a day in a bra with a broken underwire." - Adrienne Flagg, Badass Theatre member
