State St., is partnering with the Athens Community to present the 4th Annual HUMBLE PLAY: APPALACHIAN NEW PLAY FESTIVAL, this coming September 29-October 4, 2008, and they are pleased to invite submissions from adventurous playwrights, directors, and theater companies.

Acknowledging gifted writers and directors with new plays that speak to a regional audience, ARTS/West will open its doors for these new works September 29-October 4, 2009.

There are two categories for entry into the festival this year: “Playwright,” and “Company.” Each division has a separate application and application fee. Winning playwrights are offered an honorarium for their participation in the festival.

A script committee will review each play submitted. Be concise and clear in your application: the committee is interested in your evaluation of the play you’ve submitted, which is where you will impress.
