Write your own ACT ONE

web site

Moss Hart's passion for the stage took him from the slums of the Bronx to the heart of the Great White Way. His autobiography, ACT ONE, is the ultimate showbiz story, and now it's a critically acclaimed play.

If you're a budding playwright, Lincoln Center Theater is offering you a chance to have your own Moss Hart moment. One talented writer will have his or her script read by Producing Artistic Director André Bishop, and will receive an evaluation of their work. The winner will also receive a pair of tickets to see ACT ONE at the Vivian Beaumont Theater and a copy of the Moss Hart memoir.

To enter, send a one-paragraph synopsis of your play (no longer than 200 words each), along with a one-page dialogue sample by May 16, 2014 to ActOneContest@lct.org.

The winning playwright will be announced on May 30, after which they will be invited to submit the complete play for Mr. Bishop to read.

See you at the theater!

Please note that Mr. Bishop will read the winning play, but neither a staged reading nor a production are promised by this contest.
