2nd annual new works teaser copy.jpg

We appreciate your patience as the need arose to move our production date to January 13 & 14, 2023. 


We thank every single playwright who entered our selection. This was an incredibly difficult and time consuming decision as we wanted to give each of the over 600 plays received equal reading time, consideration and weight. After many weeks, days and hours of hard work, the play reading committee have settled on our Festival production plays and the directors have been selected.


The final plays we will be presenting are listed below:

"Blood of the Refurbished Virgin" by Craig Gustafson

"Two Yards of Satan" by Kelly McBurnette-Andronicos

"Dating Anxiety" by Lisa Carter

"I’m Fat" by J.J. Spaulding

"Clara the Christmas Tree Angel" by Enid Cokinos

"Dancing in the Elevator" by Dorthea Chan

"Gram Scams" by Cary Pepper

"Stuck" by David Susman

"Phoebe" by Bob Kolsby

"You Don’t Have To Go Home But You Can’t Stay Here" by Erin Enwright

The winning entries will be produced by Paradox Theatre Works and provided a venue, audience, directors and actors to perform the play live at our “The Living Room” New Works Festival Showcase 2022 in October. The production will be in front of a live audience and recorded. It will subsequently be posted after the production on our website.

If you have any questions about this process, send an email to: 

$ 50 prize for the play voted Audience Favorite and a $50 prize for the play voted Jury Favorite will be awarded after the final show. Winners will be announced and notified via the contact information given on the submitted script.
