End of Play.® starts April 1, 2023!
End of Play.® is open to both members and non-members of the Dramatists Guild. Writers of all backgrounds are encouraged to participate, and prior writing experience is not necessary. Join the challenge today!
What is End of Play.®?
The Dramatists Guild of America is very pleased to announce the fourth annual national playwriting month, End of Play.®
Starting April 1, 2023, participating playwrights, composers, lyricists, and librettists will be challenged to write a brand new play or musical, or revise an old draft. Through a combination of community building events, motivation, and that all important deadline, DG hopes to inspire countless new works.
End of Play.® is an annual initiative, created by the Dramatists Guild, to incentivize the completion of new plays, scores, or songs over the period of one month. Since the launch of End of Play.® back in 2020, hundreds of participants from all over the world have connected with one another, uniting to overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of creating new theatrical work.
Each year, writers set goals for themselves at the beginning of End of Play.® month and share their weekly progress with the community. Goals may include writing a new full-length play/musical, two one-act plays/musicals, or completing a second draft of any of the above. Ultimately, the aim of End of Play.® is to get writers to the finish line with inspirational prompts, motivational events, and the support of their End of Play.® community.
