TheatreWorks West, the resident theater company at Westminster College, has announced plans for its second annual playwriting competition, the winning entries of which will be presented during the company's 1991-92 season during a production entitled "Utah Shorts: An Evening of 10-Minute Plays."

All works being considered in the contest must be written by Utah playwrights. TheatreWorks West will select 9 to 12 plays to present as part of the "Utah Shorts" program, and all playwrights whose plays are chosen will receive a royalty.Guidelines for submission of plays are:

1. Scripts must be about 10 minutes in length.

2. Playwrights must be Utah residents.

3. East of production (cast size, sets, props, sound, etc.) will be a major factor in the selection process.

4. Scripts should be in finished form. Major rewriting will not be allowed once plays are chosen.

5. Scrips should be submitted blindly to ensure impartiality. (Attach a cover sheet with name, address and telephone number, but DO NOT include this information on the copy of the play itself.) The script will then be submitted for reading to an impartial panel of judges.

6. Scripts will not be returned to authors.

7. Deadline for submission is May 15, 1991.

8. Submit scripts (one copy) to:
