* We will provide the 5 playwrights with a dramaturge to mentor them from their initial submission idea to the development of their first draft.

* A panel of four industry practitioners assesses the first 5 drafts scripts. 3 playwrights are selected from the initial 5 to be commissioned to a final draft.

Submissions are due October 31 2005.
