We selected these 21 from a field of 150 scripts that were submitted.  Each play was read three times by a theatre professional, critiqued, and ranked.  Through a double-blind scoring system, semi-finalists are selected.  From there, plays are read aloud by professional actors in several private table readings with the judging committee until the final selections have been made.

In the coming days, as I begin to compile the materials into the book, I will be blogging about those experiences.
