THE SECOND BRACKET BATTLE HAS ALREADY STARTED!

We are excited to start the second iteration of our War of the Words.  This year we invited 26 playwrights to write their way into the bracket with a 5 minute audioplay.  The playwrights were divided into 4 groups and will each write a 5 minute play based on an assigned sound cue and theme and using actors drawn at random.  The audioplays for each group will be released as an episode every Monday over the course of 4 weeks.  After each episode is released, the audience will vote on their four favorites of each group!  The top four vote getters in each group will move into our second ever Sweet Sixteen audioplay bracket!
