-Keep the composition of the Salt Lake City talent pool in mind
-Multi-media is not required but possible if integral to the play; rear projection is not possible

The winner of the Plan-B Theatre grant from The Davey Foundation will become a member of The Lab at Plan-B, our monthly meeting of local playwrights. The winner will then receive a private table reading as part of The Lab, at least one table reading once cast and a world premiere production as part of Plan-B’s 2019/20 season. Dates TBA.
