After a brief hiatus due to the COVID pandemic, the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics (SCGP) is bringing back its Science Playwriting Competition. All talented playwrights with an interest in the sciences, and talented scientists with an interest in the theatre, are invited to compose a 10-minute play with a substantial science and/or technological component. This contest is open to the general public.

The Science Playwriting Competition brings science and theatre together for the dissemination of scientific knowledge through an intriguing lens — providing inspiration for plays that lead to exciting ways of learning about science.
A public staged reading of the winning entries will be performed during the Fall 2023 semester at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics.
