Fancy yourself the next Bard of Avon? Well then, here’s your chance: The
American Shakespeare Center (ASC) in Staunton, Virginia, announced last month
an international playwriting competition called “Shakespeare’s New Contemporaries.” The contest seeks to inspire dramatists to “compose
original works that serve as partner plays to Shakespeare’s classics.”
ASC hopes to find 38 winning plays--each serving as a modern companion to one
of Will’s original 38--and to produce them over the next 20 years.
