The Midwest Jewish Play Writing Contest
YOU WILL VOTE…ONLY ONE PLAY WILL WIN!
A showcase of new Jewish plays presented by Continuum Theater and the Jewish Plays Project

For the 7th year, Continuum Theater partners with The Jewish Plays Project to bring the international Jewish Play Writing Contest to the Midwest. Professional actors act, with script in hand. The audience sees selections from three brand-new, contemporary Jewish plays and the audience votes for their favorite to continue on to the final round where a winner is named Best Jewish Play of the year. This contest helps playwrights develop and promote new Jewish plays and provides the exposure and publicity that can help them secure performance opportunities. In this year’s plays NYU film students grapple with Jewish history, a JCC artistic director commissions a controversial play, Elijah the Prophet steps in to ward off the plagues when faith, family, science and mysticism collide at one Midwestern family’s Passover Seder.
Our thanks to Sonia Marschak for underwriting this entertaining and educational program.
