End of Play.TM is an annual initiative, created by the Dramatists Guild, to incentivize the completion of new plays over the period of one month. Starting with a successful launch in March 2020, hundreds of participating dramatic writers across the world connected with one another to overcome obstacles that stand in the way of writing the first draft of new plays.
Each year, writers set goals for themselves at the beginning of End of Play. Month and post weekly updates about how they are doing to 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 goal of End of Play.TM is to get writers to the finish line through motivation and community.
