On Monday, April 15 the works of six student playwrights and screenwriters were given staged readings and adjudicated at the Stocker Center, Studio Theatre. Each playwright is a member of Professor J.R. Simons Introduction to Playwriting class, and the plays were evaluated by Northeast Ohio playwrights Eric Coble, Margaret Lynch, Eric Schmiedl and GLT School Residency Supervisor David Hansen.
First place was awarded to “Thanotopia (or a nihilist manifesto)” by George L. Stewart, and this work will receive a fully-staged, script-in-hand performance performed by Great Lakes Theater actor-teachers and directed by David Hansen on Wednesday, April 24 at 7:30 PM at the Stocker Center, Studio Theatre. This performance is free and open to the public.
Runner-up playwrights were Jerred Adams and Kyle Bilancini.
This LCCC playwriting contest is part of GLT’s “Surround” series of free events presented across Northeast Ohio.
