I Was A Finalist For The STAGE International Script Competition

Hey, so, guess what? My play Gyroball was a finalist for the STAGE International Script Competition:

The STAGE International Script Competition awards a $10,000 USD prize for the best new play about science and technology in content and/or form. The winner of the 4th Competition is The Altruists, by Craig Baxter. The finalists (in alphabetical order) are Gyroball, by Tim Bauer; Leg Man, by David Caudle; Instructions to Any Future Socialist Government Wishing to Abolish Christmas, by Michael Mackenzie; and The Other Place, by Sharr White.

An added bonus: the judges included David Auburn, John Guare and David Lindsay-Abaire. (Along with a few Nobel Laureates.) Which means they read and presumably liked my play. Which is a little surreal to think about. I mean, I have plays by all three of those guys sitting on my bookshelf about six feet from me as I type this. (It would have been two feet in the old place, which is one reason I’m psyched we moved; look at all this space.)

Anyway, if you want to learn more about Gyroball, go here. If you want to learn more about the other plays or writers, go here.
