3rd Annual Tel Aviv Playwriting Contest

Join us for a front row seat at the 3rd Annual Tel Aviv Jewish Playwriting Contest. You will have the opportunity to see American and Israeli theater artists celebrate the best in new Jewish playwriting! Produced by CenterStage Israel and presented by New York’s Jewish Plays Project, we will feature three amazing plays from aspiring writers: Madeleines by Bess Welden, Say Goodbye by A.R. Cohen/Corwin, and Tree of Life by Victor Wishna.

Part live play reading and part ‘American Idol’, this unique event comes to you from CenterStage Israel in Ra’anana. You will have the opportunity to vote for the ‘Best Of’ with the live audience, as these hand-selected plays compete, and YOU help cast a deciding vote.

During the program you will learn:

What it means to experience the only professional English-speaking Israeli theater;

The roles of CenterStage and Jewish Plays Project in their respective artistic communities;

The vision for this collaboration and supporting the aspiring playwrights;

The different genres represented by the plays and the backgrounds of the American writers and Israeli actors.
