call for submissions
And by big prizes, I mean $350 for first place, $250 for second place, and $150 for third place. And you pay $20 to enter. So, they need uh... 38 entries to break even. Deadline October 31, 2007.
The Little Theater of Alexandria has posted submission details and a loooong list of terms and conditions here: http://www.thelittletheatre.com/oneact.htm. Don't scroll too far, or you'll see that none of last year's winners were from the DC area.
