Ten short plays by North Carolina playwrights will be selected for full production in the NC 10 by 10. The festival runs July 11-14, 2019 at The ArtsCenter in Carrboro and July 18-20 2019 at The Cary Theatre in Cary.
The festival is produced jointly by Cary Playwrights’ Forum and OdysseyStage. Each group will cast and produce five of the ten winners. All ten plays will be presented at each performance, with the production moving from The ArtsCenter to The Cary Theatre for its second weekend. Last year’s festival had over 1200 attendees.
The theme for the 2019 NC 10 by 10 is FORTUNE. See a definition of Fortune here.
NC 10 by 10 accepts entries only from playwrights currently living in North Carolina.
Each writer whose work is produced during the festival will receive an award of $50.
