Here's how it works:

- Every play gets 1 point for being in the Top 10

- If a play is chosen for the Top 3 in any region, it gets 1 point.

- If a play wins a Live Contest Event, it gets 2 more points, for a total of 3.
 

The play with the most points at the end wins the Contest. Simple, right?


HERE'S WHAT WE WANT YOU TO KNOW:

Is this Contest fair? As much as we can make it. But competition is really not the goal here. Each of these plays (and many others that we read and considered) is a fantastic vision from the inside of a playwright's head about the way we live Jewish life today. To declare one a "WINNER" or to say its "BETTER" is in no way conclusive or "right", and it's not the point.

The JPP's Contest format is built to shine a light on a new kind of Jewish narrative, created by emerging writers all over the world. We want hundreds of individuals to interact with these plays through the JPP, then thousands on the stages where they are produced, and then millions as they enter the cannon of literary drama.  

 

We sincerely hope you'll join us in making Jewish theater for the 21st Century. Here's how:
