The STAGE International Script Competition, now in its fifth cycle, awards a $10,000 USD prize for the best new play about science and technology in content and/or form.

The prize is given at a public awards event with distinguished professionals from the worlds of theatre, film, science and/or technology, to be held in conjunction with a staged reading/performance/demonstration with a cast of professional actors. In addition, the winning playwright will have access to advice and guidance from professional theatre and film artists as well as experts in the fields of science, engineering and technology. Other development opportunities for the winning script may be possible.
