2021 Mazumdar Competition Entry

Playwrights, please format your submission draft in the following way. Each full length and one act submission must be uploaded as a single PDF document.

  • Remove all all personally identifying information (name, contact info, agent, agent’s contact, etc) from your script.
  • Be sure to include a character and scene/song breakdown. Include character names and any necessary identifying traits, plus doubling plot, etc.
  • If it is a musical, please indicate on your title page a URL where demos can be heard.

The Mazumdar New Play Competition is not adjudicated blindly, however, the literary staff prefers to first take in the play itself without any identifying information. Your responses to questions on the form will be linked to your script in a separate spreadsheet for use in final rounds.

If you have questions, please reach out at newplays@alleyway.com
