Competitive proposals will demonstrate how the proposed play will resonate with South African audiences, and, preferably, feature a play written in the past 10 years by an African-American playwright. Preference will be given for plays that highlight American contributions to end apartheid in South Africa. Please read the full announcement before submitting an application. Applications should be emailed to [email protected]
