Yes, thanks for all the posts. I'd recently earmarked Caffeine Theatre and was thinking of posting it here myself, and I always catch up with MadLab's theatre roulette this time of year, but a number of the others I've not encountered before.

Regrettably, the play I've written that best fits the theme 'It's Over' is a musical, though not one for which I've written original songs.  ('Easter Bonnet', 'Lydia the Tattooed Lady' and a couple of other songs are used.) A musical comedy about cross dressing and the death penalty, it still astonishes me I'm the only one ever to think of that. I'll have to see if I have (or can write) anything appropriate otherwise.

I'll be looking over some of the other posted opportunities closely. I think a twisted holiday play (sketch, cabaret) would be fun to do, and I might have a play that would work well for the Apocalyptic competition. Wondering whether the one screenplay I've written (a comedy thriller) might possibly work for the Mystery contest. It doesn't really involve the solving of a mystery (the one mystery at its core is never solved) so it might be on the margins of what they're looking for.

Regrettably, though I always write plays of ideas (it seems easier to put them in than leave them out), I've yet to do one that's explored a specifically Jewish theme. Greek, Japanese (Zen), but not Jewish.  Might be worth tackling, on the model of something like Peter Barnes' 'Heaven's Blessings', and I am at loose ends for a new theatrical project. . .
