City Theatre will develop and produce the winning play for its 2014 Summer Shorts Festival (June 2014). As part of the prize value, City Theatre will cover travel expenses and hotel accommodations so the playwright can attend and participate in the festival.

Deadline is September 30, 2014. No entry fee.
