We are proud to announce that UNSEX’d by Alberta playwrights Jay Whitehead & Daniel Judes is this year’s winner of our New Queer Playwriting Competition!
The winner was chosen by a blind jury that was tasked with evaluating each play based on a number of factors including whether a submission contained positive queer content. The jury was very impressed by the calibre of the submissions and choosing the winner between the top three was especially difficult.
The final results are:
Winner: UNSEX’d by Jay Whitehead & Daniel Judes
Runner Up: DAGMAR AVENUE / HOUSE OF DREAMS by Adam Meisner
Honourable Mention: FINISHING THE SUIT by Lawrence Aronovitch
UNSEX’d will be workshopped for two days next week, March 19th & 20th. Playwright Jay Whitehead will be in attendance and the workshop will be directed by Kate Newby.
A public performance will follow the workshop in the evening on March 20th at 7:30pm at Lunchbox Theatre’s TransCanada Stage.
