Jennifer Jasper’s play, EGGS, is a finalist for the 2016 City Theatre National Award for Short Playwriting!

The City Theatre National Award for Short Playwriting furthers the company’s mission to identify, acknowledge, and award excellence in dramatic writing. This season’s collection of playwrights who are finalists were selected from a fierce pool of 1,100 talented writers. The winning play is guaranteed production in the annual Summer Shorts Festival, for which the playwright will earn a $1,000 cash prize, royalties, an invitation to Miami for the festival, and an invitation to partake in the CityWrights Professional Weekend for Playwrights. Not all of the finalists’ plays become current or future Festival productions. However, all finalists are invited to CityWrights to see the Festival, take part in the conference, and have reading of their works performed by the City Theatre ensemble of actors.
