The adjudication committee consisted of Bill Whitaker, Andrea Urice, Carter W. Lewis and Paige McGinley. The author’s names were removed from the scripts so the adjudication process was “blind”. The selected plays will be workshopped with a guest dramaturg, Michele Volansky in the fall.

Dates for the fall workshops are September 12-26, 2020.
