What If? Productions has opened submissions for this year’s Playwright Competition. Playwrights from anywhere in South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, or Tennessee can submit unpublished scripts via email to play@whatifproductions.org until April 25, and three finalists will be announced by May 31.

Those plays will be staged as readings during the Playwrights Festival in July, with the winning play staged as a full production during What If? Productions’ upcoming season — last year, that play was the comedy The Practice Child, written by Savannah College of Art and Design grad Tyler Stuart.
