About the Competition
Endowed by alumnus, novelist, poet and playwright A.E. Hotchner, this annual playwriting competition is open to all undergraduate and graduate students at Washington University. Many past "Hotch" plays have gone on to full production in the PAD season and around the country.
All Washington University undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to submit. All selected plays will be workshopped over a two-week period with a professional guest dramaturg, Wash U. actors and a PAD faculty director in Fall 2022. The workshop process will culminate in public readings of each play during two days of presentations. All plays selected will receive a cash award (full-lengths, $100; short plays, $25).
PLEASE NOTE THIS COMPETITION IS FOR WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY STUDENTS ONLY!
