|NEW JEWISH PLAY PRIZES
Established in 2020, Theater J’s New Jewish Play Prizes recognize extraordinary new writing that celebrates, explores, or struggles with the complexities and nuances of the Jewish experience from established and emerging playwrights. Created in memory of two longtime Theater J supporters and leaders, the annual prizes both inspire and celebrate the continuation and development of the Jewish theatrical tradition in the United States.
We are currently accepting submissions through May 31, 2021.
We encourage plays which authentically represent characters and experiences of racially and ethnically diverse Jews, as well as explore the historic and present-day intersections of white Jews and Black, Indigenous, and Peoples of Color.
