Another Award for “Shakespeare Incorporated”

Posted on: December 10, 2008

I heard yesterday that Shakespeare Incorporated, my latest completed play, has been selected as one of three finalists in the full-length play category of the 2009 Rocky Mountain Theater Association Festival Playwriting Competition.  The competition is open to playwrights from Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Idaho and Montana.  Each of the finalist plays will have a reading at the Festival in Durango, Colorado the first week in February, after which a single grand prize winner will be chosen.

This is the second award for Shakespeare Incorporated.  I’ve had 5 of my other plays produced in the past 9 months, and 2 more are scheduled in the next 6 months.  Aren’t all the playwrights’ clubs that wouldn’t accept me as a member in the past two years going to feel silly now?  I hope so!

Go to the Plays Page to see more on Shakespeare Incorporated.

I’ve always felt that judging anything “artsy” is highly subjective, and I’m glad you didn’t let the naysayers deter you from pursuing your dream. Congrats!
